Hit-and-Run Accident in Chula Vista Claims Life of 23-Year-Old Skateboarder
(June 18, 2018) – According to local police reports, a young, 23-year-old man was found fatally wounded at the intersection of South Rancho Del Rey and Buena Vista early Sunday morning. The man was found dead near his skateboard at approximately 4:00 a.m. and police have been able to conclude that he was the victim of a hit-and-run. Several people called the police in order to report the accident which occurred in the westbound lanes of Buena Vista.
Details surrounding the nature of how the crash took place are still unclear. Whether or not the man had crashed on his skateboard before being hit, or if he was hit while riding is being determined. Either way, the driver that struck the man did not stop and remain at the scene as is required by law. The police attempted to revive the young man but their efforts proved fruitless as he died at the scene. The accident is currently under investigation, and our warmest condolences go out to the victims’ family and loved ones during this tragic time.
Pedestrian accident and Wrongful Death Attorney
Currently, police are still looking for the suspect while conducting their investigation into the crash. If the suspect is found, they will likely be brought up on felony hit-and-run charges as well as vehicular manslaughter. Further details of the investigation could likely prove negligent driving, which may ultimately create solid ground for a wrongful death lawsuit.
Aside from emotional turmoil, the devastating events of this sudden accident will certainly leave large financial burdens for the victims’ family. Immensely high funeral costs, loss of companionship, and the loss of future wages are among the main reasons many families seek to obtain compensation for their losses. However, the choice to take legal action in the form of a wrongful death claim is always saved for the victims’ family.
