OCEAN BEACH: Male Transient Fatal Victim in Hit-and-run Crash on 8 Freeway

OCEAN BEACH, San Diego (October 22, 2016) – According to an article by ABC 10, one person was killed after a hit-and-run collision on Interstate 8 freeway Saturday morning.

At about 6:00 a.m., a solo-car crashed along the freeway between Mission Bay Drive and Sunset Cliffs Boulevard.

As per the report, a gray four-dour passenger vehicle slammed through a fence along the right should of the freeway, hit a tree, then rolled over for several yards before coming to a rest.

During the mayhem, a male transient was on the north side of the fence. The man was struck by the out-of-control vehicle. Medics responded shortly after the crash and pronounced the male deceased at the scene.

Police officers also arrived at the scene and located the involved vehicle deserted. Witnesses claimed three people were spotted fleeing on foot after the accident. Later, San Diego police detained three people south of the freeway, but authorities could not say if they were involved in the collision.

Police also mentioned the identity of the fatality will be released once next of kin notification is accomplished.

Further investigation is underway.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
