Santa Clarita, CA- Fatal Pedestrian Crash on Golden Valley Rd. Near CA-14 Off-Ramp

Santa Clarita, CA (April 18, 2019)- The Golden Valley off-ramp at Highway 14 was the scene of a crash on Friday night that left a pedestrian dead.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the crash happened at around 10 pm when a driver struck the pedestrian, a man in his 60s.  According to the CHP’s report, the unidentified pedestrian was seen walking on the shoulder of the road at approximately 9:20 pm. The CHP then received a second call reporting the man walking in the right-hand lane.

Following these reports, a 25-year-old Tustin man driving a 2002 Honda Accord hit the pedestrian after attempting to veer away from the man when he saw him in the road.

The victim passed away at the scene. The driver was subsequently arrested. His charges were not reported and are not known at this time.

Golden Valley Road was closed for officials to begin an investigation into the crash. It was reopened by 11 pm.

We send our sympathies and thoughts of comfort and peace to the family and friends mourning this loss.

Distracted Drivers on California’s Roads

Many pedestrian accidents are due to drivers who are distracted for one or more reasons. Cell phone use, talking with passengers, drowsiness, distracting thoughts, and drugs and alcohol can reduce a driver’s ability to stay alert. While drivers are used to focusing on other vehicles, staying alert for pedestrians remains their responsibility as well.

The families of those killed in pedestrian accidents should not have to carry the financial burden of this disaster caused by another’s carelessness. For nearly thirty years, the Brady Law Group has been securing thousands of dollars in settlements for families of those lost in pedestrian accidents. Call 866-478-6483 for a free consultation.
