Valle Vista Hit-and-Run Accident
An online news release by Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department indicated that the victim was airlifted to an area hospital with serious injuries. The name and condition of the patient at this time remained unknown.
Meanwhile, witnesses provided several description of the possible two cars involved and told CHP that the motorists who allegedly hit the pedestrian did not stop to render aid and left the scene.
The incident is still under investigation.
Motorists are obliged to stop after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is apparent that the driver(s) will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the injuries of the pedestrian. Regardless of their reasons, fleeing the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the incident hurt another individual. We are hopeful that authorities will soon be able to locate the suspect(s) and justice will then be served.
The victim has the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. The victims of hit-and-run collisions need an experienced lawyer who will fight aggressively to obtain the settlement they are entitled to, including the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income and pain and suffering.
