Woman Struck in San Diego Hit-and-Run Car Accident
A 61-year-old woman was seriously injured in a hit-and-run wreck that occurred on September 25‚ 2011,around 11:30 p.m. in the 3500 block of Central Avenue. According to the police‚ the woman was removing her dead dog that had been hit by a car when a southbound vehicle struck her in San Diego’s Castle neighborhood.
The impact of the collision was so strong that the female and her pet were thrown forward and onto the pavement. The woman suffered a broken leg and lacerated liver and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment.
The accident is under investigation. Investigating officers need to locate the older read four-door Buick sedan and driver‚ who is said to be a Hispanic man with facial hair. The motorist committed the felony of hit-and-run. It is not only a violation of California law but also morally incomprehensible that someone would cause an accident and not bother to help the victim. This is a very tragic accident.
As for now‚ the injured woman should seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County pedestrian wreck lawyer who would educate her about her legal rights and assure that the motorist is brought to justice.
The injured woman can file a personal injury claim against the motorist to obtain compensation to cover treatment‚ medical bills‚ and hospital costs.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes and prays that the injuries suffered by the pedestrian do not prove fatal.
