Shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, a pickup truck struck and killed a woman riding a motorized scooter in Anaheim. The white Chevrolet pickup was traveling south on Euclid Street when it collided with the woman, who was also riding south in the Number 1 lane at the time, near Crone Avenue. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver is cooperating with authorities in their investigation of the accident.
“After a fatal accident, the negligent party may be held liable for the loss suffered by the family of the victim,” explained an Orange County injury lawyer.
Traffic accidents claimed the lives of or caused injury to 2,229 people in Anaheim in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS compares the traffic statistics of cities with similarly sized populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. That year, Anaheim ranked 3rd out of 13 cities with populations over 250,000 for its incidence of fatal and injury accidents.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the woman who was struck and killed while riding the scooter.
