Texas man killed in hit-and-run car accident on the Interstate

Interstate driving, though often convenient for the sake of saving time, can be dangerous. While no one is immune to the dangers posed to drivers on the freeway, motorcycle riders may find themselves at an increased risk for accidents, as their vehicles are simply more difficult to see. Sadly, a man in Texas, who was operating a small motorbike, was killed in a hit-and-run car accident while riding on the freeway.

The early morning accident occurred on Interstate 35 in north Fort Worth earlier in August. According to police, witnesses to the accident stated that a black SUV struck the scooter and continued onward while dragging the scooter behind. The driver then, supposedly, stopped to dislodge the scooter and drove away.

The driver of the scooter, a 59-year-old male, reportedly died before he could be transported for medical care. An investigative team closed the freeway for several hours in order to gather all available evidence. Police are still looking for the driver responsible.

Hit-and-run incidents may seem especially difficult to cope with. The victim's family is left having to grieve their loss, with few answers as to how or why the accident happened. Though the investigation into this car accident is still ongoing, when the driver responsible is found, the victim's family may be entitled to file and litigate a wrongful death claim against that individual. If a Texas civil court confirms liability, financial relief can be granted to the victim's family for the current and future economic losses that may result from the loss of their loved one.
