Authorities do not need to investigate much as the woman was in a crosswalk at the time of the collision. The efforts of authorities will likely be based primarily on locating the suspect at this time. Once found, they will certainly face a host of criminal charges that will likely leave the family members of the victim with a solid wrongful death lawsuit. While we are always passionate about holding negligent and criminal drivers responsible for the incredible pain they inflict, the personal decision to file a claim for compensation can only be made by the victims’ family.
