February 23 wrongful death in Turlock pedestrian accident

On February 23 Charles Arnold was killed in a wrongful death pedestrian accident on Olive Avenue in Turlock. Arnold was hit by a Honda Pilot driven by Paulette Field while crossing North Olive Avenue at Wayside Drive. Reportedly he was in the crosswalk near the sidewalk. Field saw him and braked but was unable to stop in time. The passenger side front bumper of her car hit Arnold. He was taken to Emanuel Medical Center and later pronounced dead. Field claims that she was unable to see Arnold due to the dark and rainy conditions. Officials claim that Field was driving between 35 and 40 mph in a 30 mph zone and will most likely be cited for driving too quickly for the conditions.
