At about 6:10 a.m. on Friday, December 20, a vehicle struck and seriously injured a pedestrian in Rancho Cucamonga.

Paramedics performed CPR and rushed the victim to an area hospital. The Press-Enterprise provided no additional details about the condition of the pedestrian.
Thirteen pedestrians lost their lives or were injured in accidents that occurred in Rancho Cucamonga in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records. The OTS compares the accident data of cities with populations of a similar size, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, starting with 1st place. That year, Rancho Cucamonga ranked 50th out of 53 cities for pedestrian accidents.
Under California law, when a pedestrian is seriously injured in an accident, he or she may pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party in order to be compensated for recovery-related expenses. If the pedestrian does not survive the accident, his or her family may file a wrongful death claim in order to hold the at-fault driver liable for their loss.
