UPDATE: Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Miguel Macias Killed in Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on 210 Freeway

Rancho Cucamonga, CA (January 21, 2019) On the evening of January 18th, a fatal hit-and-run pedestrian accident happened on the 210 Freeway at around 7:30 p.m. According to the reports, a 32-year-old man named Miguel Macias was standing outside of his yellow Hyundai right before he was hit and killed, just east of the Archibald Avenue exit.

When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they found Macias lying on the ground fatally injured. They discovered that he was checking one of his tires right before he was hit.

The police are currently searching for the driver responsible.

We send our sincerest condolences to Macias’ family as they grieve the loss of their loved one.

Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents in California

Unfortunately, recent studies revealed that California had the most hit-and-run fatalities in the nation in 2016. There are many reasons why drivers choose to flee the scene instead of being accountable for their actions. For example, if drivers are driving with an expired license, without auto insurance, in an unregistered vehicle, in a stolen vehicle, or with a warrant out for their arrest, they’re more likely to flee the scene of an accident because they fear the outcome of their negligent behavior. Whenever hit-and-run accidents occur at night, it’s likely that drugs and/or alcohol are contributing factors, which is another reason why drivers continue to flee.

Once the police find and arrest the driver responsible, Macias’ family could hire a California wrongful death lawyer to help them file a wrongful death lawsuit.
