Elderly Dies when hit by Pickup in Porterville

Pedestrian accidents often result in serious or fatal injuries because a pedestrian’s fragile body can be easily damaged when hit by hard objects, specifically vehicles.

In fact, a 91-year-old man, from Porterville, recently died after he was hit by a pickup truck.

Reports said the elderly was walking northbound across Henderson Avenue in Porterville when he was suddenly struck by a Chevrolet pickup.

He was rushed to Sierra View District Hospital, where he was announced dead later on.

The unnamed pickup driver was reportedly a 46-year old woman, also from Porterville.

Authorities have not yet released additional details regarding the incident.
