Ontario, CA – Angel Mora Dies in Fatal Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on Mission Boulevard
Ontario, CA (January 23, 2019) Earlier this month on January 12th, a fatal hit-and-run pedestrian accident happened at the intersection of Mission Boulevard and Euclid Avenue. According to the reports, a 22-year-old named Angel Mora was hit by a vehicle just after 4:30 a.m. Unfortunately, the vehicle proceeded to drive off without stopping.
When emergency crews arrived, they found Mora dead at the scene.
The authorities are currently still searching for the driver responsible.
We send our warmest condolences to Mora’s family as we know how difficult it is to lose a loved one in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident.
Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents in California
Studies show that nearly 65 percent of all hit-and-run accidents involved pedestrians that suffered fatal injuries. The reason why these drivers failed to stop at the scene was because most of them were driving negligently and feared the consequences of their actions. Other times drivers who committed these crimes either had a warrant out for their arrest, were in a stolen vehicle, had no auto-insurance or updated registration, or had an expired license. Regardless of one’s intent, it’s unacceptable for any driver to strike someone and leave them at the scene to suffer.
Once the police catch the driver responsible, they’ll face hit-and-run charges and more. Mora’s family could then file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of a California wrongful death attorney.
