Pedestrian Killed in Merced Hit and Run Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Merced personal injury and car accident lawyer. A pedestrian suffered fatal injuries after being struck by a car in Merced on May 13, 2018. At approximately 2:00 in the morning, the pedestrian was walking along R Street in the vicinity of Buena Vista Drive when he was hit by a vehicle, whose driver allegedly left the scene prior to the arrival of officials. Unfortunately, the pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the intersection due to the severity of their sustained injuries. The Merced County Coroner’s Office have recently identified the victim as 68-year-old Joe Lang of Catheys Valley.
