American Canyon: Motorist Struck, Injured Sarbjeet Kaur, Sukhjeet Kaur, and Paramakaal Riat
Posted on Jul 12, 2013
At about 9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10, a motorist struck and injured 55-year-old Sarbjeet Kaur, 32-year-old Sukhjeet Kaur, and 16-month-old Paramakaal Riat in American Canyon. While traveling northbound on Danrose Drive, 81-year-old Robert Harris struck the two female pedestrians as they pushed the baby in the stroller in a crosswalk at Northhampton Drive. Emergency responders transported the women and child to an area hospital, Sarbjeet for major head trauma. The child was later transferred to Oakland Children’s Hospital. The pedestrian accident is under investigation.
“When a motorist’s negligence results in an accident that causes injury to pedestrians, the victims may file personal injury claims against the motorist in order to be compensated for their recovery-related expenses,” explained California pedestrian accident attorney James Ballidis.
American Canyon accounted for none of the 2 fatalities and 1 of the 30 injuries pedestrians suffered in traffic accidents that occurred in Napa in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Napa 30th out of 58 similarly sized cities for its incidence of pedestrian accidents in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to Sarbjeet Kaur, Sukhjeet Kaur, and Paramakaal Riat, the pedestrians who were struck and injured.
The American Canyon Eagle originally reported this pedestrian accident.
