Pedestrian Killed In Verona Car Accident on Route 365

VERONA, CALIFORNIA (March 24, 2024) – A pedestrian has tragically died in a Verona car accident on Route 365 by Stoney Brook Road.

Verona police officials are saying that the collision took place around 10:10 p.m. on Sunday. A person was crossing the road when they were struck by a vehicle.

Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victim. Sadly, though, the pedestrian later died after being taken to the hospital.

A full investigation into the pedestrian collision remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For New York Pedestrian Accidents

Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code 1146, all drivers must exercise due care to avoid hitting pedestrians, bicyclists, and domestic animals in the roadway. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid hitting a bicyclist, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. It is important that certain steps be taken after any pedestrian accident.

  • Eyewitnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • An experienced pedestrian accident attorney should be contacted.

The vast majority of pedestrian accidents are preventable and often involve some amount of driver error. Sadly, though, drivers will often do everything in their power to deny responsibility for any collision. The family of any person who is killed in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
