Salem Man Injured After being Struck by a Car on Highway 34

Early Sunday morning a Salem man was critically injured when he was hit by a car on Highway 34 east of Corvallis.

A 2000 Chevy Impala was heaving east on Highway 34 when it hit someone in the lanes of travel.

The pedestrian, German Haro-Arellano, 19, of Salem, was taken to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Impala, Adrean Antonio Magana, 18, of Albany, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving, and recklessly endangering another person. Neither Magana or his passenger were injured.

We wish German Haro-Arellano 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.
