Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident Modesto


Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident Modesto

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto personal injury attorney. A pedestrian was struck by a hit-and-run driver during the afternoon hours of Saturday, March 25, 2017. Sadly, the victim suffered traumatic injuries due to the pedestrian accident.

What Happened?

An elderly woman was walking in a crosswalk along Paradise Road in the vicinity of Ellen Avenue at about 1:00 pm. A motorist of a red sedan was traveling westbound along Paradise Road when they crashed into the woman. The sedan allegedly drove away from the scene moments after the crash.

According to a witness, the impact of the collision propelled the woman into the air. Fortunately, the witness was able to follow the suspect’s vehicle and obtain a partial license plate. The hit-and-run driver has not yet been found.

Victim Suffers Traumatic Injuries

The victim of the pedestrian accident was identified as 67-year-old Kann Sao. Sao suffered traumatic injuries including a broken nose and a fractured pelvis. Sao received surgery on her nose and has been released from the hospital. Sao is still recovering from her injuries and is unfortunately unable to walk.

Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents

Hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians are among the most serious type of accidents. The reason being is that a pedestrian has no form of protection against a motor vehicle. If a motorist crashes into a pedestrian and flees from the scene without calling 911, the victim may suffer traumatic or even fatal injuries if aid is not rendered immediately. It is best to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer for more information.
