Stockton, CA (October 23, 2023) – A pedestrian accident reported on Saturday morning in the Stockton area claimed one person’s life.
Just after 6:15 a.m. on October 21, the California Highway Patrol troopers out of Stockton were called to the scene of a crash on the Interstate 5 Freeway.
Investigations show that a semi-truck and multiple vehicles were involved in a crash on the southbound side of Interstate 5. Due to unknown circumstances, a pedestrian was struck by the semi-truck in the area near the off-ramp for Fremont Street. The pedestrian was then struck by multiple other vehicles.
The California Highway Patrol responded and shut down the highway.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead on site as a result of their injuries. No other injuries were reported.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
Our sympathies are with the family of the victim who died in this crash.
In the state of California, hundreds of individuals suffer fatal injuries in truck accidents every year. Regrettably, many of these accidents involve drivers who fail to yield the right of way.
Truck drivers are obligated to yield to other vehicles and pedestrians in several circumstances, including when making left turns, merging onto highways, or entering intersections. When a truck driver fails to yield the right-of-way, it can lead to devastating accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people. In addition, we see many fatal truck accidents take place as a result of distractions, speeding, and impairment.
