California Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident and Wrongful Death
The investigation into this incident will primarily focus on locating the hit-and-run driver who killed the victim. While investigators may consider whether or not the victim was in a marked crosswalk as well as the time of day which would suggest poor visibility, the suspect will likely face felony charges for leaving the scene. Once found, the driver will likely be arrested which will also open up solid grounds for a wrongful death claim for the family members of the victim.
