On June 21, 2012, a pedestrian was killed in Mountain View. The accident occurred on California Street near the intersection of Escuela Avenue at approximately 9:30 a.m. According to published reports, the victim was waiting at a bus stop when he was hit by an Audi sedan that was travelling eastbound on California Street. The victim has been identified as 50-year-old William Ware of Mountain View. Mr. Ware was reportedly dead by the time emergency personnel arrived at the scene. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family in their time of immense grief.
Police are still investigating to
determine why the Audi left the roadway.
Driver negligence is the leading cause of pedestrian accidents and will likely
be found to have contributed to this accident.
There are many different manifestations of driver negligence including: driver inattentiveness, drive confusion, intoxication, and excessive speeds. If driver negligence is found to have caused
this accident, the driver and his insurance company can be held liable.

pedestrian accident. The trial lawyers
