Elderly Woman Dies in a Hit-and-Run Accident

One of the primary responsibilities of drivers is to drive cautiously. If they accidentally hit someone, especially if this person was fatally wounded, they should stop their vehicle and call for medical help.

However, many drivers seem to forget or ignore this obligation. In fact, another hit-and-run accident that happened recently ended the life of an 84-year-old woman.

The driver of the white Chevrolet Silverado pickup that struck the woman is being searched by the police.

The elderly woman was out walking her dog along a suburb of Montebello in Los Angeles when the accident happened.

According to Police Lt. Brian Bart, the woman was announced dead at the accident scene. The truck’s driver did not stop after the accident.

The pickup’s chrome front bumper was obviously damaged due to the incident and was last spotted dragging along the street.

Responsible driving is the main solution to hit-and-run and all other kinds of road accidents. In the occurrence of an accident, drivers should not turn their back on the person who was hurt because it will only worsen their offense.
