A San Bernardino man was killed while crossing the street on a motorized scooter Monday night. Police say the man was struck by an SUV at 8:30 p.m. while he was in the crosswalk at the Base Line and Davidson Street intersection in San Bernardino. The man was dragged several feet and was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to witnesses, the man was in his 50s and was well-known in the neighborhood. The SUV driver remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. The crash is still being investigated, and it is not clear yet if alcohol or drugs were involved.
However, witnesses say motorists frequently drive around the neighborhood at high speeds, and that the streets are not well-lit—a dangerous combination for pedestrians.
“Drivers need to respect the speed limit, especially in residential areas and on dark roads. Speeding around these poorly lit roads at night is just a recipe for disaster,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
