Napa, CA – Pedestrian Receives Critical Injuries in Soscol Avenue Accident
Napa, CA (January 26, 2019) – Police reported that a pedestrian received critical injuries in a Soscol Avenue accident that took place on Tuesday. The woman has since been identified as 62-year-old Mary Jackson of Napa.
At the time, Jackson had been parking her bus on Soscal Avenue and started walking across the road. This is when a vehicle came through and struck her. Jackson was about to go back to the bus yard before she was struck.
Paramedics responded to the scene around 6:40 p.m. and Jackson was rushed to the hospital with a variety of critical injuries. The driver who struck her did not stop to render aid and fled the scene.
Police are looking for the responsible driver, who was allegedly in a dark newer-model Honda with front-end damage. At this time, the investigation into the matter continues.
We were saddened to hear about this horrific accident and would like to extend our sincere sympathies to those involved. We hope that the injured party will be able to fully recover from her injuries.
Pedestrian Accidents in California
Recent studies have shown that many of the pedestrian accidents that take place on California roads happen because of negligent drivers who are not paying attention to their surroundings. When drivers are engaged in texting, talking to passengers, driving under the influence, or driving fatigued, any type of accident can take place in the blink of an eye. Especially in the case of hit-and-run drivers, those who flee the scene after a pedestrian accident are almost always liable, as they have committed a serious crime.
