Gloria Hawkins Car Accident

A Latino or black man in his 20s and another man and woman in their 20s quickly exited the vehicle and fled the scene leaving the victim behind in the Mustang.

Authorities alerted paramedics that immediate medical attention was needed to be given to the victim, a woman. She was rushed to a nearby medical center where she tragically died of her injuries.

The victim has since been identified as Gloria Pearl Hoskins, 66, of Modesto.

Per the Modesto Bee, a business nearby was able to catch surveillance footage of one of the male suspects who had been running in the alley behind the establishment.

No arrests have been made at this time as Modesto police officers have initiated a full fledge investigation to locate and detain the assailants.

Modesto Wrongful Death Lawyer

Motorists are obligated to remain at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is evident that the hit-and-run motorists will be held fully responsible for the woman who lost her life in this tragedy. Leaving the area following a collision is a serious crime and punishable by law. We are hopeful that authorities will be able to locate the suspect and justice will then be served.

In this case, where wrongdoing is clearly evident, the victim’s family will have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party who neglected her safety and well being seeking recovery for funeral costs, pain and suffering, loss of future income, and loss of companionship.
