Shortly before 8:30 p.m. on Friday, September 27, a vehicle struck and seriously injured a 17-year-old girl in San Marcos, reported U-T San Diego. An eighty-three-year-old Escondido resident in a white Hyundai hit the girl as she traversed a crosswalk at the intersection of West San Marcos Boulevard and Knights Realm, in front of San Marcos High School, the impact throwing her to the ground. Emergency responders transported the teenager to an area hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. Authorities are investigating the accident.
San Marcos accounted for none of the 55 fatalities and 8 of the 938 injuries suffered by pedestrians in traffic accidents that occurred in San Diego County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked San Marcos 98th out of 103 cities of similar size for its incidence of fatal and injury pedestrian accidents that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
In California, those who have been injured in traffic accidents may file personal injury claims against the negligent party in order to be compensated for recovery-related expenses.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the 17-year-old girl who was struck and seriously injured.
