Driver in Fatal Hit-and-Run, Yet to Be Arrested

Police are yet to apprehend the driver in the fatal Prunedale hit-and-run accident which took the life of a 41-year-old man who was trying to cross the street.

Authorities speculate that the vehicle, which was either a red truck or an SUV, has damages on its front bumper after hitting Prunedale pedestrian Gregory Pryer.

Pedestrians should always be cautious when crossing the street and always use marked ways so that they can be seen by oncoming motorists.

Likewise, motorists should be cautious of crossing pedestrians and make it a point to stop and assist the victim if he ever gets into an accident. By this, they can subtly settle their dispute without having to go through personal injury litigation which will involve a lot of time and expenses on both ends.
