Police say that they have a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run crash

Many people in Pennsylvania drive their vehicles every day and may need them to get where they need to go. They are also much faster and convenient than walking or other alternative transportation. So, there are many cars on the roads every day. However, even people who drive their cars to a location, generally need to walk afterwards to get to their final destination. This could be just walking through a parking lot, but sometimes people cannot park right next to a building and may need to cross a street in order to get to where they are going.

It appears this is what a man was doing recently, when he was struck by a vehicle who ended up fleeing the scene. The man was crossing the street from a restaurant that he had just left when he was hit and ended up dying as a result. The police have been looking for the vehicle who hit the man and stated that based on where the impact occurred that the driver would have been aware that he or she had struck something. After reviewing surveillance video, police now say they have a strong suspect, but there have been no arrests at this time.

Losing a loved one is never easy, but it can be particularly difficult when it happens suddenly in a car accident like for the man above. It leaves the family no time to prepare for the death and it can be extremely difficult emotionally as the family suddenly has a big hole in their lives. It can also be very difficult financially if the victim provided the primary income for the family. Simply figuring out how to pay bills can be difficult. These families may be entitled to compensation though, which can allow the family to focus on the emotional healing.

Unfortunately, there are many fatal car accidents in Pennsylvania each year and there are many families left trying to fill massive voids in their lives. While compensation for the financial loss will never bring the loved one back, it can at least help fill the financial void in their lives. Experienced attorneys understand how devastating these accidents can be and may be able to guide one through the process.
