Edith Rubaloff, of Ojai, was in the crosswalk when she was hit by the car driven by an 89-year-old woman living in a surrounding neighborhood in Ojai.

The impact of the collision left the 83-year-old woman with grave injuries. Rubaloff was quickly rushed to a hospital, where she tragically succumbed to her injuries.

Pedestrian Accident Investigation

In most instances, pedestrians possess the right-of-way when crossing an intersection or a street regardless if they are in a marked crosswalk. It is always a driver’s duty to yield to any pedestrian or bicyclist, however, pedestrians must take extra caution and never assume that a motorist will stop. Authorities will continue to look further into this incident as it is likely that at least some liability will be assigned to the driver.

Considering that liability seems to have already been determined, the family of Edith Rubaloff may be entitled to a wrongful death claim if they wish to file a lawsuit. Family members of wrongful death victims are entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
