Natomas Pedestrian Collision

Bus Hits Woman Downtown

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer.  On February 25, 2016 a tragic pedestrian accident involving a bus occurred at Fifth and N Streets in Sacramento.

What Happened?

An El Dorado Transit Bus hit a pedestrian. An unidentified woman was struck by a bus as she proceeded through a crosswalk. The devastating accident happened as she was crossing N Street. Witnesses said the tragic incident caused the woman to be dragged underneath the bus about 40 feet down the roadway.

What Caused This Tragedy?

No cause has been released. An investigation must be performed to determine cause. Initial reporting indicated the bus was completing a turn from Fifth Street onto N Street. Some witnesses stated the female pedestrian was not distracted as she proceeded through the crosswalk on N Street.  So far, investigators have not said much about cause. This is the kind of case where you need an experienced accident attorney in your corner.

What About Security Camera Footage?

There was a security camera on a corner building near the accident scene. Investigators will likely utilize this valuable footage. Many times the security camera footage proves to be a valuable piece of evidence in cases like this one. It can help establish where the pedestrian was located, whether anyone was distracted while driving or walking, as well as many other difficult to prove factors. A picture doesn’t lie.
