RIVERSIDE, California – Pedestrian Adelina Gonzalez was struck and killed Monday night as she walked across Mission Boulevard near Pedley Road, according to a Riverside Sheriff-Coroner report.
Gonzalez, 45, of Riverside, was pronounced dead at the scene, the report said. Police will conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the pedestrian accident. At this time there have been no charges against the driver of the vehicle who remained at the scene. Additionally, police do not believe that alcohol is a factor in this incident. Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Jurupa Valley Station at (951) 955-2600.
If police concludes that the accident was due to unsafe or negligent driving, the victim’s family should consider contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer. When someone loses their life in a pedestrian accident a wrongful death claim can help compensate the family for their devastating loss. The compensation from such a claim can help pay for funeral and burial expenses and more.
“Indeed, pedestrian accidents have been on the rise lately and California has the highest rate of people killed in these accidents than any other state in the country,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of the Thomas Law Firm.
There are four states – California, Texas, New York, and Florida – that account for 40% of all fatal pedestrian accidents, according to a report by the Governors Highway Safety Administration. These states are also the most populous in the country. In contrast, the 25 states with the fewest pedestrian fatalities account for 12% of the total killed in the United States.
