The fatal crash is under investigation by the Riverside Police Department. Authorities will piece together what led to the crash and assign liability. Witnesses may help in their investigation as well as any surveillance video that may be available. Hit-and-run drivers are one of the worst kinds of criminals: cowards. There may also be a third party responsible such as a government or business. For example, if the driver was working at the time of the crash his or her employer may be on the hook to compensate the family of the victim. For more information, it’s best to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.
