Hit-and-run accident on Pacific Coast Highway results in fatality

Highways can be dangerous for people in their cars and absolutely deadly for anyone not in a vehicle. With cars generally traveling at high speed at all times, an automobile accident on any highway can cause serious injury or even death. A recent accident on California's Pacific Coast Highway proves just how dangerous the roadway can be.

On Feb. 11, a local tow truck driver was assisting a motorist who was having car trouble on the Pacific Coast Highway. Witnesses reported that a silver vehicle struck the tow truck operator and kept driving. The California Highway Patrol was notified, and when authorities arrived at the scene at roughly 9 p.m., they found the tow truck driver lying on the road unconscious. The man eventually died from his injuries.

Shortly after their arrival, law enforcement officials were notified that a silver vehicle, which was ultimately identified by witnesses as the same car that had struck the man, was found two miles from the hit-and-run scene, where it had collided with a parked car.

The silver vehicle's 44-year-old female driver was taken to a local hospital for head injuries and is reported to be in critical condition. Authorities are still waiting for laboratory test results to determine if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident.

Because the hit-and-run driver was found, the victim's family members may be able to exercise their legal rights and bring a civil suit for wrongful death. While it will not bring back a beloved family member, families in such situations may be able to seek compensation to help close the financial gap caused by the loss of any future wages.
