Pedestrian Killed in Oklahoma City Hit-and-Run Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on April 2, 2012

A 38-year-old man was killed in an Oklahoma City car accident after a car jumped the curb and drove on the sidewalk. According to a news report in The Oklahoman, the fatal pedestrian accident occurred near NW 10 and Western Avenue in Oklahoma City. Officials say the victim was walking on the sidewalk when a driver let her car jump the curb and strike him before leaving the scene of the crash. He succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital. Anyone with information regarding the driver or the whereabouts of the 1980s Dodge or Plymouth four-door car with tag 120-DPM is asked to call the authorities.

Under Oklahoma law, it is a felony to leave the scene of an accident when someone has been injured or killed. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-10-102.1: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in the death of any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of such accident or as close thereto as possible but shall then forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of the accident.”

The family of a deceased Oklahoma hit-and-run car accident victim may have it in their best interest to speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer who will stay on top of the official investigation and ensure that their legal rights are protected in their Oklahoma wrongful death case. There are different legal options available for the victim’s family depending upon whether or not the at-fault driver is tracked down and arrested by the authorities.

The experienced Oklahoma City pedestrian accident attorneys at The Maples Law Firm help victims of Oklahoma car accidents get the compensation they need and rightfully deserve.
