San Diego Wrongful Death Hit and Run Accident, Teen Facing Accountability

A preliminary hearing has been set for a 19-year old driver who struck and killed a 4-year old boy, a 10News.com article reports. The motorist is being charged with hit-and-run causing death and has been accused of not stopping after hitting the child on South Encanto Street in San Diego. According to the article, the driver dragged the young boy for 25 feet and returned to the scene of the accident after telling his mother that he thought he struck someone. If the teen is convicted, he may face up to four years in prison in addition to other possible charges.

This fatal hit-and-run San Diego pedestrian accident emphasizes the serious consequences of drivers failing to see pedestrians and not stopping at the scene of a crash. Not only does a motorist potentially face criminal charges, but he or she may also face civil penalties to compensate an injury victim or a wrongful death victim’s family.
