A man was hit by a car in Van Nuys on Sunday and unfortunately he passed away as a result of the impact. The Van Nuys pedestrian accident occurred at about two o-clock in the morning on Sunday, when a man, Obdulio Castaneda, was crossing the street and was hit by a car.
According to the Daily News, the Van Nuys car accident happened on Vanowen Street, near Kester Avenue. It has been reported that the man was crossing outside of the crosswalk when he was struck by the car.
According to the investigating authorities, the cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma, most likely by a combination of the initial impact with the car and then the subsequent impact with the road.
The family of the victim of this Van Nuys accident should hire a Van Nuys wrongful death lawyer to investigate this incident to see if a wrongful death claim may be viable. No information was made public about who collided with Mr. Castaneda and if the driver of that vehicle did anything to cause the accident.
In a situation such as this, just because the man was crossing outside of the sidewalk does not necessarily mean the accident was his fault. The other driver may have been intoxicated, may have been speeding, driving recklessly, or many other possible scenarios might have occurred. This is why a good investigation is necessary by an experienced wrongful death lawyer.
