Florida Street Racers Kill Pedestrian in Hit and Run
A car full of street racers in Florida hit a pedestrian, killing the 18-year-old. The police say that a large group of street racing enthusiasts were crowding around waiting for a race early in the morning on June 15. When the police arrived on the scene, large groups of street racers began to flee the scene.
Witnesses say that one car, filled with four men hit the victim, causing his body fly and slide 70 feet before coming to a stop. After killing the pedestrian, the car fled the scene. The car that was involved in the pedestrian accident was apparently a silver or grey Acura.
Racing high performance cars is something many young men and women take part in, but it is illegal. As a result, when law enforcement officials arrive on the scene of a street race, many of the racers try to flee to avoid fines and tickets. The street racers involved in this pedestrian accident deserve to be held accountable for their illegal actions. In addition to pedestrian accidents, street racing can cause motorcycle accidents, car accidents, and property damage.
If your loved one has been injured as a result of a street racing accident, you may be able to recover compensation for their injuries. Please contact an experienced pedestrian accident attorney to help you get compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and even lost wages.
