It is evident that the driver of the black vehicle will be held responsible for causing the tragic incident that led to the death of the pedestrian involved. Leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law especially if the collision tragically killed another individual.
The surviving family of the woman will have then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. Family members of wrongful death victims will be entitled to a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
