Police Offering Reward for Fatal Hit and Run Accident Identification
December 15, 2017
A man was killed after being struck in South Park recently, prompting police to establish a reward for anyone who has information about the accident. A reward with a maximum of $1000 is being offered in conjunction with the arrest or prosecution of the driver who hit and fatally injured a 48-year-old pedestrian in South Park earlier in the month. The victim of the accident was hit along Snowden Road.
After sustaining serious head trauma, the man was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The victim was noticed walking south in the northbound lane of the road and believed that he could have been lying in the roadway for some time before being hit.
The investigators at the scene believe that it is possible that the individual who hit the victim may have been under the impression that he struck an animal or an object and drove on. Unfortunately, hit and run accidents claim far too many lives and lead to catastrophic injuries all too often. It can be very difficult for a victim or a victim’s family members to pursue an injury claim when the at-fault driver has not been identified.
Any witnesses who have information about hit and run accidents are encouraged to come forward as this could help with the appropriate prosecution and enable civil lawsuits for the victim or his or her family members – if the victim was fatally injured.
Sadly, hit and run accidents happen too often and can leave the victim and his or her family members paying the price. If you or someone you know was recently hurt in a hit and run accident, you need to consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
