A 63-year-old Hollywood man was killed recently when he was waiting for a bus early in the morning. The victim was at a bus stop on his way to work a little after 5:00 in the morning when he was hit by a silver sedan. Investigator reports say that the car was travelling north on Western Avenue when witnesses say it suddenly swerved into oncoming traffic and then careened into the man and crashed into a tree. The two men in the vehicle got out of the car looking disoriented and then fled into a nearby apartment building. Witnesses stated that the two individual went right past the victim without checking on him. The men later left the building and were picked up by someone in a blue four door car. The victim's three surviving children were devastated by the loss and police are continuing to look for the blue car and the two men who crashed the car into the man and left the scene. Speak with a personal injury lawyer about any questions you have concerning a pedestrian accident or other injury accident case.

Pedestrian Accidents Have Many Causes

Most pedestrian accidents occur when a driver on the road becomes distracted or is operating the vehicle in a reckless manner. Drunk driving, texting while driving or doing other things while driving that take the individual's attention off the road can result in the car veering into a pedestrian walkway or failing to notice a crosswalk, etc. In other cases, the accident may have been due to poorly maintained roadways or bad street lighting or even defective auto parts which caused the driver to lose control. It goes without saying that when a pedestrian walking along a roadway is hit by any kind of vehicle the injuries can be very severe or fatal. You deserve strong legal representation if you were hurt or lost a loved one because of someone else's negligence.
