Hit-and-run car accident claims the life of Texas 3-year-old

Accidents involving a vehicle striking a pedestrian generally result in catastrophic consequences. Unfortunately, it is easy for drivers to miss seeing someone in a crosswalk or on the side of the road, especially when the pedestrian is a small child. A recent hit-and-run car accident in Austin claimed the life of a young boy, and authorities are still pursuing the suspect.

The accident occurred on May 22 at approximately 5 p.m. According to an article which describes the accident, the child was walking with his family through a crosswalk when he was struck. Officials report that the truck involved in the accident was making a turn when the driver hit the toddler.

After the collision, the driver sped away from the scene of the accident. Police are still trying to locate the driver who was involved, as well as his or her truck. They have released pictures of the truck that they believe was involved in the accident, and are hoping for a member of the public to contact them with identifying information.

Authorities are strident about pursuing criminals in hit-and-run cases, and with the ubiquity of video evidence available, it is difficult for drivers to elude capture. Though the suspect in this case has not yet been apprehended, the family of an Austin victim involved in a similar pedestrian car accident could benefit from contacting an attorney who has experience in personal injury law and wrongful death litigation. Many unexpected expenses can result from such a tragic event, such as medical bills, funeral costs and other financial considerations.  Attorneys in this field may be in the best position to discuss the various legal options available, and could assist the family in recovering losses quickly upon the apprehension of a suspect.
