Driver Kills Man in Hit and Run

Hit and run accident is killing thousands of Americans every year. It happens when a driver leaves the scene after being involved in an accident.

Leaving the scene of the accident involves various repercussions. It could result to death of the victim, agony of the victim’s family and imprisonment of the party at fault if caught.

However, hundreds of drivers choose to hit and run than to accept responsibility.

Just like the incident that happened in San Diego, wherein a pedestrian was killed. The accident occurred on Meade Avenue at 32nd Street in Normal Heights. The 40 year old victim died due to head injuries.

In California, a driver involved in an accident must stop the vehicle and fulfill certain requirements. Otherwise, he could be punished by a fine or imprisonment or both.

Despite efforts to minimize it, hit and run accident has dramatically increased in years. It has leaped to prominence with a number of disturbing incidents such as the above. Every accident has become part of an alarming trend, a trend which has to stop.

For victims of hit and run accidents, employing the services of a personal injury lawyer could help them and their grieving family.
