Pedestrian Accident in El Cajon

Visibility may be to blame.

A fatal pedestrian accident claimed the life of a man in El Cajon Thursday evening.

Officials say, residents along Dehesa Road west of Sycuan Casino called 911 around 7:20 p.m. after they heard a woman screaming in the road. An elderly woman driving a 1995 Honda Civic collided with a 43-year-old El Cajon man who was allegedly walking in the roadway at the time. The force of the crash shattered both car windows and crumpled part of the roof of the Honda. The elderly couple in the Honda received bruises to their hands and face.

When an NBC 7 news crew asked them for their take on the collision, they refused to talk.

Officers say the roadway was dark at the time of the accident, with no streetlights. CHP officials say this could have possibly been a factor but the man was walking in a traveled portion of the roadway.

Investigators have ruled out drugs or alcohol for the driver but cannot say the same for the victim. The investigation continues.

When involved in a pedestrian accident, it is important to understand your rights.

Consult with an experienced attorney.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
