CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. – A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle in Cathedral City and sustained non-life threatening injuries Friday was at fault for the collision due to crossing the street outside of the crosswalk, police said.
The man was struck at about 6 a.m. on Ramon Road, east of Landau Boulevard, Cathedral City Cmdr. Julio Luna said.
As a driver was heading west on Ramon Road, Luna said the man stepped into the roadway’s left lane and the driver “was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.”
The pedestrian was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Luna said alcohol was not a factor in the crash for either the pedestrian or the driver.
