Big Rig Flees Scene in Hit-and-Run
Brown was the rider of the motorcycle who was hit by a big rig and pushed into another vehicle up ahead before being ejected from his bike.
Brown sadly sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Meanwhile, the big rig driver who triggered the collision failed to stop and render aid and continued on fleeing the scene. As of Tuesday, police officials had not detained the hit-and-run driver.
The big rig has been described as yellow in color with a white trailer hitched to the back.
Anyone with information is urged to phone the Oakland CHP division at 510-450-3821.
Based on this news report and the information provided, it appears as though the big rig driver will be held responsible for causing the accident. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family of Nicholas Brown may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party seeking compensation for damages including funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.
