Man arrested for causing fatal accident in death of woman

One Texas family is grieving the loss of their 23-year-old loved one. She was the victim of a fatal accident when a man reportedly ran her down and left her alone without seeking assistance for her. Police then conducted a search that went into a neighboring state.

The accident occurred in the early morning hours of a recent March weekend. The driver who has been charged purportedly was traveling on a local road when he claimed that the young woman walked out in front of his vehicle. He also stated that he was unable to come to a stop before striking her with his car.

The man claimed that he drove from the scene out of fear for having struck the pedestrian. People who reportedly saw the collision stated that the driver exited his vehicle and looked at the victim on the ground before proceeding to drive away. Friends who the man had been with reported that he allegedly left for the neighboring state after he contacted them.

Texas officials requested help with locating the vehicle and driver. Oklahoma law enforcement then tracked down the car, and both state agencies located the 38-year-old driver. He was arrested and will be returned to Texas to face charges here. The victim's family may pursue their own justice through monetary means by the filing of a wrongful death civil lawsuit against the man deemed responsible for causing the fatal accident. A successful outcome to such a case may allow the family to receive compensation to help alleviate the burdens created by the funeral and related financial losses that may have added to their emotional pain and suffering.
