In this case, it is evident that Mr. Omar Padilla will be held responsible for causing the tragic incident that led to the death of the pedestrian involved. Leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law especially if the collision tragically killed another individual.

Aside from hit-and-run, the suspect is also accused of speeding at the time of the incident. The surviving family of Ms. Norma Santana will have then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
