Stockton Pedestrian Killed

A 57-year-old pedestrian lost his life in Stockton during the early morning hours of Sunday, April 17, 2016.

What Happened?

Stockton Police Department dispatched officers to a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian near Wagner Heights Road and Thornton Road. There, they found the man down, who was soon taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Sadly, the victim did not survive the injuries he sustained from being struck by the motor vehicle.

Shortly after the motor vehicle collision, a second accident occurred with the pedestrian. A drunk driver struck a police patrol car, causing extensive property damage, police said. Thankfully, no injuries were reported from that incident. The driver who rammed the police patrol car had been drinking. He was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence.

What Caused the Crash?

A traffic collision report usually takes about ten days to complete. No other information has been made available regarding the cause of the collision. Many times, an experienced auto accident attorney will be asked to investigate an accident scene, especially when someone has lost their life. Occasionally, traffic collision reports are inconclusive or are in error, leaving the family of the victim with many unanswered questions as to how and why their loved one died.
