One Lyft driver was struck dead in a hit and run accident last weekend on eastbound highway 94. He pulled over to the right side of the freeway to sit on the shoulder when one of the passengers inside the vehicle became sick. Fatal injuries can impact the lives of family members for many years. Many fatal injuries associated with car accidents can be prevented.
Another driver slammed into the back of the car shortly after 1:00 am. The driver of the vehicle was found outside the car, although all three passengers were still inside. The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. It is believed that the driver stepped out of the vehicle to assist the sick passenger at the time that the car accident occurred.
Unfortunately, this is just one more grisly story to add to the number of fatal car accidents in San Diego. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a hit and run accident in San Diego, you have rights to consult with an experienced attorney and potentially file a personal injury claim or a wrongful death claim. The emergence of Uber and Lyft has raised more questions about liability and car accidents than ever before. It’s important to remember that anyone can be injured in a serious car accident, but you should always be careful when suffering a breakdown or needing to pull onto the shoulder and step out of the car.
To have the facts of your case evaluated is essential to get medical attention immediately after the accident and also set up a meeting with an experienced personal injury attorney.
