Sacramento Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Hit and Run injury attorney. On the night of January 1, 2017, a pedestrian was tragically killed while walking along Rio Linda Boulevard in Sacramento. What makes this tragedy even worse is that the driver of the car that struck the pedestrian fled the scene without stopping to render assistance to the victim.

What Happened?

A pedestrian was walking along the 2800 block of Rio Linda Boulevard in the vicinity of Alamos Avenue in Sacramento when they were struck by a vehicle that was identified to be a white pickup truck or SUV.

Authorities Seeking Witnesses

The pedestrian that was involved in this hit-and-run accident suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision. Authorities stated that the vehicle they are looking for has front-end damage and may be missing a headlight. Anyone that has information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact a tip line set up at (916) 808-6030.

What to do in Hit-and-Run Accidents

If you have witnessed or have been involved in a hit-and-run accident, it is very important for you to report the incident promptly. When cases involving hit-and-run accidents are reported immediately, there is a significantly higher chance for authorities to find the negligent motorist and hold them accountable for the damages they have caused.

Insurance Covers Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident Victims

Victims that have been involved in hit-and-run pedestrian accidents may be covered by their insurance if they or someone else in their household has uninsured/under-insured motorist insurance (UM). The victim is usually covered by that uninsured motorist insurance until the negligent motorist that caused the hit-and-run accident is brought to justice. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney for additional information.
