Ambulance Hits, Kills Pedestrian in San Jose Saturday Morning

San Jose, California – A man is dead after being hit by an ambulance Saturday morning at McKee Road and El Rancho Verde Drive in San Jose.

According to a San Jose police report, a collision involving an ambulance and a pedestrian was reported shortly before 5:00 a.m. a few blocks west of Regional Medical Center.

Authorities said the ambulance was traveling at normal speeds without activated lights or siren when it hit the man.

Police said the victim was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident.

The ambulance crew stopped and rendered aid to the man before another ambulance responded and took him to the hospital.

Unfortunately, the man was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police closed eastbound McKee from Checkers to Jackson Avenue for an unknown duration as they investigated the incident.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”

Mr. Khodaverdian is the recipient of numerous accolades including one of the: Top 10 Wrongful Death Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Motor Vehicle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Truck Accident Settlements in CA in 2019, and Top 10 Motorcycle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019.
