Pedestrian killed in New Jersey hit-and-run

Losing a loved one is difficult. Coping with the death of a loved one in a car crash can be especially challenging, as these crashes occur suddenly and are likely the result of a negligent driver. What can make an already trying time even harder is when the driver that caused the accident fled the scene.

Recently, a fatal pedestrian accident occurred in Cherry Hill. Based on reports from New Jersey law enforcement, the motorist struck the pedestrian on Route 38 and did not stop following the collision. It was further reported that a piece of the vehicle was left behind, providing officers with evidence to help them locate this hit-and-run driver.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the pedestrian was crossing Route 38 at Chestnut Street when he was struck. It was further reported that this intersection always has a green light unless a pedestrian pushes the button for a signal. Video footage of the area revealed that the light was red, and the pedestrian had a signal to cross when he was struck. This crash is still under investigation, and authorities are still trying to locate the driver of the vehicle.

A hit-and-run crash presents many challenges for loved ones, as they do not have a party to place liability on. However, this does not mean that nothing can be done. Speaking with a legal professional can help family members of the victim understand their rights and what options they have when it comes to filing a wrongful death action. Through a civil suit, it may be possible to seek compensation once a hit-and-run driver is located.
