Encino, CA (October 14, 2019) – Early Monday morning, October 14th, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a car on the 101 Freeway in Encino. The fatal auto-pedestrian collision was reported at around 3:40 a.m., a little west of Balboa Boulevard.
Officials with the California Highway Patrol stated that the victim was crossing the eastbound lane when a vehicle struck them. Police and paramedics were dispatched to the scene where the unidentified victim was sadly pronounced deceased.
No further information was reported as the events that led to this incident remain under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the victim at this time.
According to reports, a pedestrian is struck and killed by a motor vehicle approximately every two hours. Pedestrian accidents in California have been reported to make up 11 percent of all motor vehicle accident deaths in the state. These unfavorable statistics are commonly due to the extreme vulnerability of the victim at the time of impact, which leaves pedestrians at a higher risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries.
Deadly accidents can occur at any time, resulting in not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but the burden of extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is terribly important for bereaved family members to understand that they may likely have substantial rights at this time.
