San Diego Settles With a Pedestrian Who Suffered Head Injuries at a Dangerous Intersection for $1.5 Million

The city of San Diego is paying out $1.5 million to a pedestrian who suffered major head injuries in 2017 when struck by a car at a La Jolla intersection characterized in a lawsuit as highly dangerous.

Ruben Abagyan, 64, used phrases including “concealed trap” and “illusion and perception of safety” when describing La Jolla Shores Drive at Downwind Way in the lawsuit he filed against the city after he was injured.

The 2018 suit says the intersection, near UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is dangerous because of vision obstruction, a lack of needed warning signals and a lack of pavement markings to alert drivers to pedestrians.
