Elderly Man Seriously Injured in San Diego Accident on El Cajon Boulevard and Altadena Avenue

San Diego, California – A wheelchair rider sustained major injuries in a San Diego hit-and-run crash that occurred in the Colina Del Sol neighborhood at around 9:55 p.m. Sunday, December 6.

According to San Diego police, a 73-year-old man riding a motorized wheelchair south across El Cajon Boulevard in an unmarked crosswalk was hit by a vehicle traveling east at the intersection of Altadena Avenue.

The victim sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The involved motorist fled the scene before police arrived.

The authorities did not have a description of the vehicle or suspect involved in the hit-and-run.

The investigation is ongoing.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner 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 to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

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. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
