A pedestrian involved in an Irvine car accident near University High School succumbed to his injuries after being transported to a hospital on Monday.
Medicals respondents arrived to the site at approximately 4:30 p.m. to give a 78-year-old man who was struck by a car medical attention.
The pedestrian allegedly ran across the roadway on at Campus Drive and Paseo Montoya and was attempting to cross Campus at the time of the accident. It was during this time that he was struck by the vehicle, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi told reporters.
Concialdi said that the force of the impact threw the man “a good distance.”
He suffered serious injuries at the time of the Irvine car accident and had to be transported to UCI Medical Center in Orange, where he died from his injuries.
Officials want to notify the family of the victim before possibly releasing a name.
The accident remains under investigation. The driver operating the vehicle that hit the man remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. No immediate arrests or citations were reported.
Motor vehicle collisions can happen at any time and when they do happen, those involved are rarely prepared to deal with the issues that surround a crash. We have seen that most victims lack the experience to deal with an insurance company on their own to get the fullest compensation possible and are often left exploited while the insurance company gets claims more revenue.
Insurance companies are trained to pay out as little as possible and if you were not at fault they tend to make you believe that you were responsible for the damages. This is costly and may result in you having to deal with the repercussions of the accident, sometimes for the rest of your life.
