Pedestrian Struck While Walking Across I-10 in San Bernardino County

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on March 5, 2012 - Comments off

Jeffrey Scott Hemeke, a 21-year-old traveler from South Carolina, was struck and killed in a tragic pedestrian crash that occurred on March 3, 2012, around 12:49 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10(I-10) at Pepper Avenue. According to the San Bernardino County coroner’s office, Hemeke was hit by a car while he attempted to walk across the roadway.
The pedestrian sustained life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this pedestrian accident occurred. Was the motorist distracted? Or was he or she speeding?
The victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Bernardino County pedestrian accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.
The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim against the car driver to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
