The investigation into this fatal collision will remain focused on locating the suspected hit-and-run driver. Once found, the suspect will most likely face felony charges for evading the scene of a crash that resulted in the death of the victim. The charges against the suspect will likely open up grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit for the family members of the victim. However, the decision to file a claim for restitution is an absolutely personal choice that may only be made by the victims’ family.
