Motorists are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a collision. A driver who flees the area without rendering assistance or leaving a contact information can be subjected to felony hit-and-run charges. Based on this news report, it is apparent that the motorist involved who continued driving after hitting the woman in a wheelchair will be held responsible for the tragic incident.

In this specific case, the family members of the pedestrian killed may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault person. Surviving family members of hit-and-run victims are entitled to seek recompense for funeral costs, and loss of love and companionship. We hope the alleged hit-and-run driver will be located soon.
