Fatal Hit and Run Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a West Sacramento hit and run injury lawyer. A driver is still on the loose after hitting a man with a vehicle and driving off. This incident happened in West Sacramento on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.

What Happened?

The West Sacramento Police Department responded to a fatal hit and run crash around 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday night. The incident occurred at Walnut Street and West Capitol Avenue in West Sacramento. The victim, a man in his 50’s, was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Who Did This?

Police indicated that the suspect vehicle may be a dark or gray-colored sport utility vehicle or minivan. Authorities are searching for the suspect vehicle. Unfortunately, police do not have a description of the driver.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the man who lost his life in such a tragic way.

Anyone with information about this crime may call West Sacramento Police Department at (916) 617-4900.

Victims of Hit and Run Motorists May Still Have Insurance Available to Them

Even when a person is struck by a driver who leaves the scene, as long as the person struck has uninsured motorist coverage on his or her own car, or another person in the victim’s home has uninsured motorist insurance, the victim is typically covered by that insurance policy. Please give me a call if you have a question regarding insurance coverage for this type of claim. An experienced attorney can help victims and their families recover compensation for damages and may be able to help protect the rights of those tragically killed by hit-and-run drivers.
