Escondido Hit & Run Car Crash Kills Driver | Injury Lawyer

By Ross Jurewitz on July 7, 2011

Escondido Hit And Run18 year-old Miguel Angel Rojas from Escondido was killed in a horrible Escondido hit-and-run car accident occurred on July 3‚ 2011‚ around  2:15 a.m. at Washington Avenue and Elmwood Drive. According to the responding officials‚ 20- year- old Juan Carlos Carrillo was going eastbound driving his 1995 Lexus ES300 which collided with a Dodge Caravan driven by Rojas. Carillo and his two passengers ran from the crash‚ leaving the wrecked Lexus behind.

Rojas was pulling out of his aunt’s driveway when he was hit. The impact of the collision was so strong that the van driven by Rojas burst into flames. According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office‚ Rojas died from smoke inhalation and burns sustained in this crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Carrillo was booked into jail on Sunday night for felony hit-and-run and driving without a license. It is evident that Carrillo’s negligent actions and reckless driving lead to this serious car accident that took a teenager’s and young father’s life. Rojas has a nine month old son and is well-liked by everyone who knew him.

Carrillo is liable for Rojas’s wrongful death and the losses suffered by the family. Rojas’s family members should immediately seek counsel from a San Diego County car accident lawyer to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs‚ loss of anticipated income‚ loss of love‚ care and companionship‚ and other accident-related damages.

Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Rojas for such a heart breaking loss.
