Police searching for hit-and-run driver that killed pedestrian

A 39-year-old man was killed on Thursday night in Miami and the police are searching for the driver that fatally struck the man and then fled the scene. The 39-year-old was a pedestrian, and though few details have been provided, the police are asking for the community's help in identifying the negligent and reckless hit-and-run driver. All that is known is that the hit-and-run individual was driving a black Nissan Sentra that has extensive damage to the right side of the vehicle.

The police will investigate this matter and hopefully catch the criminal who fled the scene. This is one of the few details that we can talk about: when a driver flees a scene of an accident, their act becomes criminal. This behavior is especially heinous when someone is seriously hurt or, like in this unfortunate story, someone has suffered fatal injuries. The driver is supposed to stay at the scene and offer medical assistance, as well as answer any questions the police may have.

Everyone is a pedestrian. Drivers are pedestrians at some point in their lives. As such, we should all be very careful when we are behind the wheel of a car and pay special attention to pedestrians walking around - especially at intersections.

If you are struck by a motor vehicle and the driver's behavior was negligent or criminal, then you should consult with an attorney to get all of your legal questions answered.
