SAN DIEGO: Woman Fatally Struck by Vehicle Near Naval Medical Center in Balboa Park

Friday, August 9th, 2013

SAN DIEGO, California (August 8, 2013) – A woman was killed after she was hit by a vehicle today in Balboa park near Naval Medical Center, according to police. A man driving northbound was unable to stop in time and struck the woman while she was standing in the road on Florida Drive. The incident happened around 4:30 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Gerry Waclawek.

The woman was described as being about 35 years of age, and has not yet been identified. She died at the scene and an investigation is on-going as to what exactly occurred. The vehicle’s driver did not flee the scene and stopped after hitting the woman. Police state that drugs or alcohol do not appear to have played a role in the crash. The intersection was shut down for hours following the accident.

“It is not entirely clear what the woman was doing in the roadway, and why the vehicle’s driver didn’t see her. In pedestrian accidents there are many small things that can be the cause of a huge tragedy. Some of these small factors that can have big impact are street lighting, fog, pedestrian clothing, condition of a vehicle’s head-lights, distracted driving, and many others,” states personal injury attorney West Seegmiller, owner of The Seegmiller Law Firm.

Mr. Seegmiller has worked on several pedestrian wrongful death cases during the 30+ years he has been practicing law.

Dolores Michelle Mannis, 45, of San Diego Killed in Pedestrian Accident

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

SAN DIEGO, California (March 19, 2013) – Dolores Michelle Mannis, 45, of San Diego was killed early Friday morning when she was struck by the driver of a Volkswagen Jetta while walking alongside the No. 4 lane of the Interstate 8 freeway, according to a news release by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

About 4:30 a.m., the 20-year-old driver was traveling in the westbound lane of the I-8 freeway just east of Presidio Park when she struck Mannis. Police say the heavy morning fog may have been a factor in the crash as visibility was significantly reduced.

Mannis was pronounced dead at the scene of the pedestrian accident just moments later by a responding California Highway Patrol officer, the coroner said.

SAN DIEGO, California (March 5, 2013) — Toffin J Kulevich, 82, of San Diego died early Saturday morning roughly four months after being struck and injured in a pedestrian accident, according to a report by the San Diego Medical Examiner.

Pedestrian Injured in Spring Valley Crash on Jamacha Road

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

SAN DIEGO, California (Jan. 14, 2013)  —  A man was injured Monday night when he was struck by a vehicle on Jamacha Road near State Route 125 in Spring Valley, according to a report in the San Diego Union Tribune.

About 8:20 p.m., the CHP told reporters that the pedestrian was walking in the vicinity of the roadway just west of the on-ramp to the 125 freeway. The vehicle ran over the man and he was stuck under the vehicle until fire fighters were able to cut and rescue him. Paramedics transported the injured man by ground ambulance to Scripps Mercy Hospital where he was treated for undisclosed injuries sustained in the Spring Valley pedestrian accident.

“Pedestrians are especially vulnerable on our busy roadways,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, a San Diego personal injury specialist. “Motorists are required under California law to yield the right of way to them whether they are at a marked or unmarked crossing.”
