Two men had been crossing the street within a marked crosswalk before being struck by a motorist who failed to stop and continued to leave to scene failing to render aid.
One of the victims, a 24-year-old man was dragged about 800 feet ultimately sustaining a broken pelvis along with other serious bodily injuries. He was rushed to a trauma center.
The other victim who was not identified by name or age was rushed to UCSD Med Center with moderate to serious injuries.
Police officials were able to finally find the hit-and-run driver who was identified as Yosvaldo Sixco, 21, after he crashed his vehicle into a parked car and a power pole.
It was determined that Sixco was likely under the influence as well as he was arrested and faces multiple charges.
HELP FOR VICTIMS
At Johnson Attorneys Group, it is just as much of a priority for us to help the police and other law enforcement officials locate the hit-and-run drivers as it is to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and expenses. Anytime a motorist hits another vehicle or pedestrian and then flees the scene without contacting that person, it is considered to be a hit-and-run accident. While a person at-fault is obligated by law to stop immediately after collision, this is not always the case. Leaving the scene of an accident that involved injuries or even fatalities is a serious crime and is considered a felony. For legal assistance with your hit-and-run accident case, contact our San Diego personal injury lawyers by calling us toll free at 800-235-6801. We can provide you with free case evaluation and help you take the right steps after your accident.
