Pedestrian Struck in Chula Vista Hit-and-Run Car Crash
Gloria Serrano was seriously injured in hit-and-run auto accident that occurred on January 5, 2012, around 5:40 p.m. at Elmhurt Street. According to the police, Serrano was attempting to cross Otay Lakes Road when she was hit by a northbound sedan.
Paramedics responding to this pedestrian accident immediately transported Serrano to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for the injury in her right arm. The driver of the sedan fled from the scene of accident before police arrived.
According to police, the sedan was a silver Hundai or Kia with a broken right front headlight and a missing right side rear view mirror. Leaving the scene of an accident is a serious violation under California law. The victim’s family members may file a Chula Vista personal injury claim against the sedan driver to obtain compensation to cover medical, hospital and treatment cost, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity and other accident-related damages.
Our San Diego personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon and do not prove fatal.
