Charles Needs Struck and Killed by Vehicle in El Cajon

November 11, 2020 – Charles Needs, age 53, was killed last Thursday evening. Moreover, he passed away in a pedestrian accident on the southbound lanes of State Route 15. 
  
According to reports, the deadly accident occurred at around 5:25 P.M. Furthermore, this happened near the El Cajon Boulevard off-ramp when the victim was hit by cars. 
  
Allegedly, Mr. Needs was walking down the roadway. Then, he was hit by several different vehicles. 
  
Unfortunately, when emergency workers showed up, they pronounced him dead on arrival, caused by multiple blunt force injuries. 
  
Additionally, CHP San Diego is continuing to investigate the accident. 

Lately, people everywhere have taken to heading outdoors.  

Furthermore, this is an easy and healthy way to get out of the house.  

Also, this means that there are more pedestrians out there.   

Subsequently, at some point in the day everyone is a pedestrian.  

Last month, NHTSA launched the first National Pedestrian Safety Month.  

Moreover, the goal is to increase awareness about pedestrian safety.  

Also, it is to remind drivers and pedestrians that staying safe is a shared responsibility.  

Unfortunately, as the end of Daylight-Saving Time approaches the nights get longer.  

As a result, the risks for pedestrians increase.  

Statistically, from September to February, over 30% of pedestrian fatalities occur between 6 p.m. and 8:59 p.m.  

Remember, that things like drugs and alcohol, or distraction not only affect a person’s ability to drive.  

Similarly, they affect a person’s ability to walk safely.  

Here are some other tips for drivers and pedestrians: 

5 Walking Safety Tips  

  1. Stay on sidewalks whenever they are available. If there is not one available, then walk facing traffic. Moreover, make sure you are as far from traffic as possible.  
  1. Always stay alert; do not be distracted by phones or texting that take your eye off the road.  
  1. Importantly, cross streets at crosswalks or intersections. Additionally, drivers expect pedestrians to look for cars in all directions. Jaywalking is illegal in some areas, and you could be fined.  
  1. Wear bright clothing during the day. Also, wear reflective clothing or materials at night. Furthermore, never assume a driver sees you. If possible, make eye contact with drivers as they approach. As a result, this will ensure that you are seen.  
  1. Pay attention for cars entering or exiting driveways. Moreover, look for vehicles backing up in parking lots as well.  

5 Driving Safety Tips  

  1. Watch out for pedestrians everywhere. Additionally, make sure you always do this. Use extra caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions. Subsequently, this includes nighttime or harsh weather.  
  1. Always, slow down and be ready to stop when turning or entering a crosswalk. Furthermore, never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. As, there may be people crossing that you cannot see.  
  1. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Also, stop well back from the crosswalk to give other vehicles an opportunity. As a result, they will be able to see and stop for the crossing pedestrians.  
  1. Obey posted speed limits. Especially, around people on the street. Follow slower speed limits in school zones and in areas where children are present.  
  1. Be extra cautious when backing up. Often, pedestrians can move into your path when you least expect it.
