Wrongful death: California pedestrian killed in hit-and-run

No family is prepared for the unexpected death of a loved one. Unfortunately, such a loss may seem even more difficult to bear when it comes with a large number of unanswered questions. For example, a family in California is now looking for the driver said to be responsible for the wrongful death of a family member.

The incident happened one evening on a day in January. According to reports, the 21-year-old victim was crossing a California street with her older sister. Police report that the pair was in a crosswalk at the time.

Unfortunately, a vehicle reportedly struck the victim, dragging her for several hundred feet. Witnesses claim that the driver initially stopped and exited his car; however, he is said to have promptly returned to the vehicle and fled the scene. Some claim that there were no screeching sounds accompanying the collision, indicating that the driver may not have braked. Though police are still looking for the driver, they have a description of the car and a partial plate number. The vehicle reportedly has damage to its hood and front windshield.

Law enforcement officials in the area are now looking for information from anyone who may have information about the accident. However, with the information that they have and the technology available to them, it is possible that the a potential suspect will be identified. While the community is supporting the California family by contributing to a fundraiser in the deceased woman's name, the family has other legal options, including filing a wrongful death lawsuit once a suspect has been identified. This can ensure that they are able to cope with the financial consequences of their loss.
