FONTANA: Alex Perez, 49, of Fontana Killed in Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on Citrus Avenue

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

FONTANA, California (July 9, 2013) – Alex Perez, 49, of Fontana was killed Sunday night after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver in a dark-colored vehicle on Citrus Avenue near Foothill Boulevard, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 9:40 p.m. on July 7, Perez was walking eastbound on Citrus Avenue when a driver hit him and he was critically injured. The driver fled the scene of the accident and did not stay to render aid to Perez as required under California law.

Paramedics transported Perez by ambulance to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where he was treated by doctors, but he later died at 12:40 a.m. the following morning on July 8, 2013.

“Pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists who are injured, as well as the families of those killed by a hit-and-run driver, may not realize that their own insurance policy’s uninsured or underinsured coverage may provide compensation for their losses,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have a case, as well as help you get the compensation you or your family needs to cover financial losses.”

The Fontana Police Department is investigating the fatal pedestrian accident. In Fontana, there were two people killed and 39 injured in 2010 pedestrian accidents, according to the latest statistics compiled by the CHP’s California Statewide Integrated Traffic Report. Also, there were a total of nine deaths and 532 injuries due to crashes in Fontana in 2010, the CHP report said.

California Pedestrian Accidents

Under California Vehicle Code Section 21950 (a) a driver must yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, said Attorney West Seegmiller, a California and Las Vegas wrongful death attorney. Also, drivers are required to slow down when a pedestrian is in the roadway and be alert for any crossings.

“There are exceptions in the law, however, such as pedestrians are required to watch out for their own safety,” Seemiller said. “This means they cannot suddenly leave a curb and walk or run into the path of a vehicle. Also, pedestrians should not unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a marked or unmarked crosswalk.”

However, if a pedestrian does step into the roadway suddenly the driver must still make every effort to safely stop or avoid hitting them whether it’s a marked or unmarked crosswalk, Seegmiller said.
