CHP is responding to a call that a vehicle has struck a pedestrian at Palm and Rialto in Fresno. Injuries are expected to be severe. The victim is being transported to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment. The extent of the injuries are unknown at this time, but vehicle vs. pedestrian accidents often lead to severe and sometimes fatal injuries.
It is often clear who is at fault in vehicle vs pedestrian accidents, and often it is the vehicle. Pedestrians often have the right of way and are supposed to be yielded to by vehicles. Distracted driving can lead to vehicle vs. pedestrian accidents. While the cause is unknown at this time, CHP will usually have a report of the accident ready within a week with a description of the events and a conclusion about fault.
