San Diego, California (November 14, 2019) – A 46-year-old man was hospitalized following a pedestrian
accident early Thursday morning in Southcrest, San Diego.
According to a report by the San Diego police,
the accident happened at about 4:15 a.m. in the 3600 block of National Avenue,
near 36th Street and east of Otto Plaza shopping center.
A man was driving a black Lincoln SUV
westbound on National Avenue when, for unknown reasons, he swerved to the right
and hit a 46-year-old man who was getting into his parked car along the north
curb of the road.
Lincoln reportedly crashed into about five
other vehicles that were parked in that area.
The motorist fled the scene and was yet to be
located. The suspect was described as a 5-foot-7 man in his 30s with a heavy
build. He was last seen wearing a black hat and a white T-shirt.
The pedestrian sustained serious injuries
including a spinal fracture and was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

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.”
