Compton, CA (October 1, 2019) – On Monday night, September 30th, a 26-year-old man was struck and killed along the 91 Freeway in Compton. The incident took place near the Alameda Street off-ramp at around 11:30 p.m.
The victim, identified only as a man from Carson, was driving a Mercedes Benz C300 when he collided with a Scion XA. Following the collision, the man exited his vehicle and was struck by a 2014 Ford Mustang, according to the California Highway Patrol. The victim was knocked into the No. 3 lane where he was then hit by a Mercedes Benz E350.
Both drivers who struck the victim stopped at the scene and were cooperative with authorities. The man from Carson was pronounced deceased and the woman driving the Scion was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family in hopes of her full recovery.
Due to the extreme vulnerability of the victim at the time of impact, pedestrians are at a higher risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries during an accident with a motor vehicle. In fact, pedestrian accidents in California have been reported to make up 11 percent of all California motor vehicle accident deaths.
Unfortunately, fatal accidents can occur at any time, subsequently leaving loved ones with not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is important for both victims or a bereaved family to understand that they likely have significant rights at this time.
