RIVERSIDE, California –  A woman and child are killed and two others critically injured after a driver lost control of his vehicle and slammed into the bus stop where they were waiting.

Melissa Bernal, 28, of Riverside and Aniya Mitchell, 7, of Corona died Friday afternoon after the driver of a Kia sedan crashed into a bus stop at Magnolia Avenue and Tyler Street, according to a press release issued by the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 1:22 p.m., on Dec. 28, a 45-year-old man lost control of his Kia, struck a power pole and then drove into the pedestrians. The 30-year-old mother of the child who died at the scene was critically injured along with a 31-year-old man from Riverside who was also critically injured.

The Riverside Police Department reported that the driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, however, the crash is under investigation by police to determine its cause.

“Victims of car accidents can sue negligent drivers who cause injuries or death as a result of a crash,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Sometimes a driver is not held criminally liable for their actions and only a civil lawsuit for wrongful death or personal injury will help a victim obtain justice.”

Beaumont: Child Injured in Pedestrian Accident on Cherry Valley Boulevard

Monday, August 20th, 2012

BEAUMONT, California (RIVERSIDE COUNTY) –  A child was critically injured Saturday night after being struck by the driver of a car on a  small two-lane roadway in the 38000 block of Cherry Valley Boulevard at Union Street, according to a press release issued by the CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department.

The Beaumont pedestrian accident took place in front of the Cherry Valley Nursery and Landscape Supply whose parking lot is alongside the roadway.

According to the fire department report, emergency workers responding to the scene of the 9:02 p.m. crash transported the injured victim to a nearby trauma center where the child was treated for moderate to major injuries.

“Police will indeed investigate this pedestrian accident to determine if the driver was in any way negligent and responsible for this child’s injuries,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “The investigation will look into whether there were any circumstances contributing to the crash including whether alcohol, drugs or distractions were involved.”

California Pedestrian Accident Law

Negligent drivers who injure pedestrians can be held liable to the victim for costs of medical care, pain and suffering and lost income under California Vehicle Code Section 21950. Drivers are required to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection. However, this requirement does not mean a pedestrian can suddenly run in front of traffic or unnecessarily stop traffic to cross the roadway.

Drivers need to exercise caution wherever there is a risk of children in the roadway and reduce speed when they are present as there is an inherent a risk of injury.
