Recently a man was killed in Natomas after sustaining fatal injuries from a hit and run collision while he was on a bicycle. This incident occurred on W. El Camino Avenue on the overpass of Interstate 5. It was in the early morning hours when the victim was discovered by a security guard and was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no information as to the other party involved.
Unfortunately tragedies involving hit and run accidents occur quite often and with no information available for the responsible parties people often question if this type of collision would be covered through insurance. The answer is yes, hit and run injuries are covered by auto insurance through the uninsured motorist portion of the policy.
