Anaheim woman sues Fullerton for pedestrian accident injuries
Posted on Aug 14, 2010
An Anaheim woman has filed a personal injury claim against the city of Fullerton for $2.6 million because she believes that unsafe lighting and traffic configurations led a car to hit her in a February pedestrian accident.
Fifty-two-year-old Samira Hassan was crossing the street at the intersection of Brookhurst Road and Valencia Drive in Fullerton at 11:02 p.m. on Friday, February 5, 2010. She sustained a skull fracture, rib fractures, chest injuries, neck injuries and back injuries in the accident.
Many, and perhaps most, pedestrian accidents occur because the victim is not visible to the driver. Pedestrians can help prevent accidents by wearing light-colored, reflective clothing and by crossing only at marked crosswalks.
Drivers should watch for pedestrians and allow them time to cross safely.
