Lancaster, CA. Pedestrian Struck and Killed by Hit-and-Run Driver on East Avenue J
Lancaster, CA. (June 26, 2018) – According to a local news source, a woman was killed early Saturday after being struck by a vehicle on East Avenue J and Andale Avenue. The pedestrian was hit at approximately 12:50 a.m. and the motorist who struck her apparently fled the scene.
The initial investigation showed that the female pedestrian was apparently walking in a dark section of the roadway when the unknown vehicle hit and killed her. There was debris from the vehicle found at the scene, and according to investigators, it seems as though the car that struck her was possibly a 2001-2007 C-Class Mercedes.
Additionally, there was a disturbance reported in the same area shortly before the accident. Investigators have been working to determine if there is any relationship between the two incidents. The pedestrian who was struck was a woman in her 40’s, although nothing else about her identity is known at this time. Investigators are still looking into the cause of this crash, and they are enlisting the public to come forward with any information they may have. Our warmest thoughts and prayers are currently with the family members and loved ones of the victim.

While investigators are working to figure out every aspect of this accident, the hit-and-run driver is likely going to be held accountable if they are caught. Fleeing the scene of an accident leads to a whole slew of charges, and the suspect will likely be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
The sudden death of a loved one leaves behind funeral costs, hospital bills, loss of future wages, and other immense expenses. For this reason, many family members choose to seek compensation from the negligent party who caused the accident. Of course, it is entirely up to the family members to decide if they wish to pursue legal action.
