Car accidents claim pedestrian lives

Alabama drivers probably do their best to drive safely, obeying traffic laws and keeping a watchful eye out for pedestrians, especially small children, as they drive. Children are usually much smaller than adults and may not exercise caution near the road, so drivers must remain alert to avoid car accidents. One child recently lost her life and, sadly, was killed while running from potential danger. 

The tragedy came to light when Alabama police responded to reports of gunshots heard in a local neighborhood. Officers rushed to the scene. Upon arrival, they discovered the body of a 14-year-old girl in the street. At first, officers were unsure what had caused her fatal injuries. 

After some investigation and witness testimony, it was determined that the child was running for her life in an attempt to avoid the gunshots. As she fled across the road, she was struck by a pickup truck. The driver did not even stop and fled the scene, seemingly with no concern for the young victim. Police were able to identify and arrest the careless driver. 

Car accidents that result in the death of a loved one can be traumatic for the family of the victim. Especially when the victim is a defenseless, frightened child, a death may seem particularly unfair. Families may decide that they wish to seek justice on behalf of a deceased victim in a court of law. During a time of grief and loss, it may be helpful to allow a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney to assist with the legal process as the family takes time to mourn a victim and attempts to heal.
