Leimert Park: Mother And Daughter Killed In Pedestrian Accident
James E. Ballidis
At approximately 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 6th, a mother and daughter were killed in a Leimert Park pedestrian accident. The two women had been standing on the corner when a Volkswagen Beetle and a Chevrolet pickup truck collided at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Coliseum Street, the impact sending the Beetle crashing into them. Both women were rushed to a nearby hospital, where they died from their injuries. Neither driver appeared to be seriously injured. The driver of the Chevrolet was given a traffic citation for failing to yield, explains a California pedestrian accident attorney.
Throughout Los Angeles County, there were at total of 214 fatal and 4,985 injury traffic collisions involving pedestrians in 2008, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Motor Vehicle Traffic Collisions for that year. Nationwide, the age groups most at risk of suffering a pedestrian accident are children between the ages of 3 and 14 years and adults aged 65 years and older. Pedestrian accidents accounted for 20% of the traffic fatalities suffered by children in this age group and 18% of those suffered by adults 65 years and older in 2008.
Pedestrian accidents are unexpected and often take a tremendous toll on the lives of the victims and their families. Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer their condolences to the family of the mother and daughter killed in Leimert Park on Saturday.
