Houston, TX (7/14/2020) – A young man is now dead after being hit while riding his skateboard late Monday in northwest Harris County.
The accident happened around 11:45 p.m. on W. Montgomery Road. A man in his late teens was riding his skateboard when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle drove off without rendering aid.
The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to officials, the accident scene is poorly lit and there are no sidewalks.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Hit-and-run crashes can be some of the most frustrating and stressful incidents in a person’s life, especially if they are hurt or they have to fight their insurance company to pay for the resulting vehicle damage.
If you or an accident investigator are able to find the person and vehicle that hit you, you can file a claim against that driver’s insurance company right away. If that driver did not have car insurance or didn’t have adequate coverage for the damages caused — which often is the case in hit-and-run accidents — you can try to get your money with the help of a trusted lawyer.
