Woman Killed after Hit-and-Run Incident

Houston, TX (12/23/2019) – A woman is now dead after being involved in a hit-and-run accident in Harris County on Sunday.

The accident occurred in the area of a feeder road at Little York when a Mercedes going at high speeds collided into the woman’s vehicle and pushed her vehicle several feet. The Mercedes came to a resting stop in a ditch and caught fire. That’s when the driver of the Mercedes escaped and ran off in another vehicle.

The woman died from her injuries sustained in the accident.

Patrol units blocked lanes of the Eastex Freeway intersection at Little York.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Wrongful Death Attorneys

Death is one of the deadliest results to come from a car accident. It involves damages such as pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and even loss of inheritance. In the case above, a hit-and-run accident resulted in a death, meaning a substantial amount of liability rests on the driver who ran off. Because these damages can be devastating, it is important to have an experienced lawyer handling the case who understands the damages of wrongful death.

An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options.
