Jackson County Deputy Hits Pedestrian on I-5 Northbound
Date: June 7, 2015
Location: Interstate 5
Name: Elios Arias
Saturday evening, a Jackson County Deputy was heading northbound on I-5 when he hit a pedestrian.
Elios Arias, 25, was walking down the center of the interstate between the lanes when he was hit by the patrol car.
Arias had been camping near the area and had been in a disturbance. He left his campsite and was walking down the middle of the interstate.
Arias was intoxicated and transported to the hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
We wish Elios Arias a full and speedy recovery.
In a pedestrian v. car accident, the pedestrian is often seriously injured. In cases where the driver is at fault, the driver’s auto insurance will ultimately compensate the injury victim.
Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP through your own auto insurance) still applies in this type of case, so use your own auto insurance to pay medical bills until you settle your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
If you don’t have an auto insurance policy, then your health insurance will cover your medical bills. If you don’t have auto or health insurance, the at-fault driver’s PIP should cover your medical bills.
If you are interested in discussing whether you might have a pedestrian accident, call a Portland pedestrian accident attorney for help and a free consultation.
