Texas woman in fatal accident is hit while walking

When pedestrian is hit by a truck in motion, it can often end as a fatal accident. If the driver fails to render aid or remain present to confront the consequences of the crash, it can create a situation that leaves people with many questions and doubts. Recently, a fatal accident in Texas took the life of a pedestrian who was left behind after being hit.

Texas police officers who had been sent to investigate a disturbance witnessed part of a fatal accident that was unrelated to their call. The officers claim to have heard what sounded like a large crash nearby, which grabbed their attention. When they looked toward the area, they reportedly saw a silver pickup truck speeding away from where the sound would have had come from.

Upon investigation, police found a deceased middle-aged woman lying in the street. Authorities believe that the pickup truck slammed into the woman as she was attempting to cross the street. Once the police discovered what had potentially taken place, they searched the surrounding area.

They were not able to locate the pickup truck that had driven away after allegedly hitting the pedestrian. As the investigation continues into what may have taken place, authorities may be able to locate the driver involved in the fatal accident. A family who has lost someone after the responsible party has fled may feel a myriad of emotions. Once the responsible party is located and determined, a person may choose to seek restitution in civil court for the damages that were inflicted.
