Citrus Heights Pedestrian Fatality

I’m Ed Smith, a Citrus Heights Pedestrian Lawyer. A 59-year old man lost his life while walking down Old Auburn Road in Citrus Heights. The incident occurred on the evening of April 24, 2016.

What Happened?

A pedestrian was hit and killed by a car while walking along a busy intersection in Citrus Heights. The tragic crash occurred a little before 10:00 p.m. on Old Auburn Road, slightly east of Sunrise Boulevard. The motorist who hit the 59-year-old pedestrian pulled over to assist. Investigators say that the motorist has been cooperating with them.

Who Caused The Crash? 

No information as to the cause of the incident or who is at fault has been made available. Oftentimes, a traffic collision report may be in error. That is why it is a good idea to hire an experienced pedestrian injury attorney right way so that a thorough investigation of the scene can be performed and valuable evidence preserved.

The intersection at Old Auburn Road remained closed for many hours while police tried to determine the nature and cause of the unfortunate collision.
