Maryland woman killed in hit-and-run accident

Many individuals enjoy that many Maryland cities promote a pedestrian lifestyle. Unfortunately, pedestrians must often cross busy roadways occupied by larger vehicles and mass transit vehicles. A momentary distraction by a driver can result in a pedestrian accident. Unfortunately, individuals struck by vehicles often suffer serious injuries and/or death. Authorities are currently investigating a recent hit-and-run accident that resulted in one woman's death.

The accident occurred on an early recent morning, and few details have been reported in the pending investigation. A 63-year-old woman was walking when she was struck by an unidentified driver. Officials believe that the vehicle was white, and they anticipate that the vehicle has damage on the front of the vehicle or on the windshield.

Sadly, the woman suffered serious injuries and died as a result. Authorities are searching for the driver involved in the accident and have encouraged other drivers to be aware to remain on the scene following a pedestrian accident. Leaving the scene of an accident only complicates matters and may result in serious legal consequences.

Authorities take locating the drivers involved in hit-and-run accidents seriously. In cases where drivers are located, drivers may face charges in criminal court for leaving the scene of an accident. Apart from criminal charges, surviving family members of deceased victims may also file a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court for financial damages such as medical or funeral expenses. Family members of deceased victims can find valuable advice from a Maryland personal injury attorney on their legal options following a hit-and-run accident.
