SAN FRANCISCO, California (July 21, 2013) – A pedestrian was struck and severely injured on the southbound side of the US 101 just south of the 10th Street onramp, according to a dispatch report filed by the California Highway Patrol.

Just after 10 p.m., CHP officers received a 911 call informing them that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle, and was laying in the middle of the roadway.

Emergency officials arrived on scene, and paramedics transported the pedestrian to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.

California Pedestrian Accident Law:  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, of Seegmiller Law Firm. 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.
