An unidentified 21-year-old man suffered serious injuries to his ankle in a hit-and-run car crash that occurred on July 4‚ 2011‚ around 10:15 p.m. in the 5000 block of Santa Monica. According to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros‚ the pedestrian’s foot was run over by a motorist driving a Mazda Sedan‚ who fled the scene.
We hope that this hit-and-run driver will soon be apprehended and brought to justice. Under California law‚ it is illegal to leave the scene of any traffic accident. This driver should have remained at the scene‚ waited for the authorities to arrive‚ and helped the injured victim in any way he could. Instead‚ he chose to drive away from the scene.
The injured person should seek counsel from a San Diego car crash lawyer to learn about his legal rights and options. An experienced San Diego County pedestrian accident attorney will make it easy for the injured person to obtain compensation and get the justice he deserves.
Our law office sincerely hopes that the injured victim recovers to his complete health soon.
