San Jose, CA – Robinder Bhurji Dies in Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident on Almaden Expressway and Camden Avenue
San Jose, CA (January 28, 2019) On the morning of January 28th, a fatal hit-and-run pedestrian accident happened at the intersection of Almaden Expressway and Camden Avenue. According to the reports, a red pickup truck struck a 57-year-old man named Robinder Bhurji. The driver briefly stopped after striking Bhurji but then proceeded to drive off without calling for help. Witnesses last saw him headed towards Redmond Avenue.
Unfortunately, because Bhurji was left lying in the roadway after the accident, four other vehicles struck him. By the time the paramedics arrived to help, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police are currently searching for the driver responsible.
We are deeply saddened by this news and send our warmest thoughts to Bhurji’s family as they work through this time.
Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents in California
Studies show that the number of pedestrian fatalities in California continues to increase every year, despite the fact that there are California laws in place to protect pedestrians. One of those laws requires drivers to slow down or come to a complete stop as they approach pedestrians no matter who has the right of way. Unfortunately, drivers fail to do so when they are under the influence, on their cell phones, and more.
Once the police find and arrest the driver responsible, Bhurji’s family could file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of a California wrongful death attorney.
