Glendale, CA – Fatal Pedestrian Crash Takes 1 Life

Glendale, CA (September 22, 2020) – A pedestrian accident took the life of one person on a roadway in Glendale this past Thursday. 

The wreck was reported to have occurred at approximately 8:00 p.m. on the evening of Thursday, September 17 for reasons still under investigation by police. 

According to authorities, the incident took place at the intersection of Brand Boulevard and Maple Street. Akop Daniyelyan, 32, was attempting to pass a slower vehicle in front of him when he struck another passing vehicle. 

The other vehicle that was struck by Daniyelyan was being driven by one Alejandro Garcia of Los Angeles. 

The two drivers then both lost control of their vehicles, struck a parked truck, a tree, and then a 60-year-old pedestrian. 

The pedestrian, who was not immediately identified, was pronounced deceased at the hospital a short time later. 

Daniyelyan was found to be intoxicated at the time of the collision and criminally charged. Garcia was also criminally charged in the incident. 

No further information has been provided at this time. 

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

Car Accidents in California

California is second in the nation when it comes to the state with the most traffic-related fatalities that occur annually. The Golden State sees approximately 3,200 deaths per year due to fatal California traffic accidents. These collisions are constantly changing the lives of injured victims and their family members and imposing lasting impacts upon everyone affected by them. Negligent actions performed while driving such as speeding, intoxication, and distraction can endanger the lives of not only the negligent driver but also everyone else they encounter on the road at any given time. 

When lives are lost due to negligent driver errors, family members are often left to deal with not only the painful loss of their loved one, but also perhaps outstanding medical bills, funeral costs, and other costs associated with their family member’s accident. In worst-case scenarios, families lose an important source of income along with losing their loved one, which can impose even further financial burdening upon them. If you have recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person, contact a California wrongful death attorney. An attorney will be able to assist you with moving forward from your recent accident aftermath by informing you of your legal right toward compensation. You could be entitled to significant financial compensation for any injuries, losses, and/or damages you may have endured as a result of your loved one’s recent collision.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.
