Rancho Cucamonga, CA (August 5, 2020) – A pedestrian accident involving a man in an electric wheelchair claimed one man’s life in the Rancho Cucamonga area on Monday, according to reports. Just before 2 p.m., on August 3, the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Arrow Route.

Reports provided by local news sources show that a man was riding across the street on a motorized scooter, in front of his home in the 13300 block of Arrow Route, when he was struck by a white van traveling west on the roadway. The impact of the crash caused the man to be ejected from his wheelchair. Emergency crews arrived at the scene of the crash and located the critically injured man in the roadway. Crews were unable to successfully render aid to the victim. The victim, who was identified as Vincente Delgado, was declared deceased at the scene. At this time, the crash remains under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family Vincente Delgado. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

Auto accidents throughout California claim the lives of more than 3,400 people each year. More than 500 of those fatally injured are not traveling inside vehicles at all. Instead, they are innocent pedestrians traveling to their destinations on foot. Regardless of the number of laws enacted throughout Los Angeles County and the state of California to protect pedestrians, we continue to witness the consequences pedestrians and their families are forced to endure as a result of negligent and reckless drivers.

As if dealing with overwhelming grief was not enough, numerous families are required to put forth tens of thousands of dollars to cover the funeral costs of their loved ones. When victims are killed in accidents resulting from the negligence of others, it is crucial that their families reach out to a wrongful death attorney in California as soon as possible. Although we understand that no amount of compensation could ever take away a family’s pain and suffering, compensation can help grieving families cover to costs of burial and funeral expenses and alleviate the impact of lost wages moving forward.
