Hit-and-Run Accident Investigation
Officials from the Fresno Police Department (FPD) have recently released an image of the suspect vehicle believed to have been involved in the fatal hit-and-run accident. The vehicle has been described as a red 4-door or extended cab pickup truck with chrome side running boards. The pickup truck is presumed to have sustained front-end damage along the driver’s side.
The details of this tragedy are under investigation. A Traffic Collision Report generally takes one to two weeks to be processed. Traffic reports may be inconclusive relating to fault. It is important, especially when a victim has passed away, to contact an experienced Fresno car accident lawyer. An experienced attorney can conduct an independent investigation of the collision scene and study the list of events leading up to the crash to pinpoint liability. Oftentimes, an attorney utilizing their investigative techniques can locate the suspect driver. Additionally, if the deceased victim had a policy of car insurance, or someone in the victim’s home had car insurance, the uninsured or underinsured motorist portion of that policy will typically cover the expenses associated with the fatality. Contact a Fresno car accident lawyer for more information.
Automobile accidents involving pedestrians are among the most severe type of collision. This is because a pedestrian has no form of protection against a motor vehicle. Pedestrian injuries are typically severe causing a victim to suffer traumatic or catastrophic injuries. If a the pedestrian does not receive immediate medical care, they may suffer fatal injuries as was the case in this incident.
If you have any information about the identity of the alleged hit and run driver, please contact Fresno Police.
