Hit-and-run accidents don’t just hurt those who have been left with injuries. If a loved one has passed away due to the negligent actions of a hit-and-run driver, the family might want to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of their loved one. As a result, they might wonder where they can start as they try to identify the negligent owner of the vehicle that struck their loved one and then fled the scene. You have options and you are not alone.
60-year-old Jesus Cruz was taken too soon in a serious hit-and-run accident that ended in his death in Sweetwater. Yoandi Fourcoy, Cruz’s son, said that he was the best dad and grandfather ever. The identity of the driver still goes unknown, and the family is looking to identify he or she.
At the time of the accident, Cruz was riding home on his scooter after finishing his dishwashing shift at work. According to what was seen on surveillance cameras, a vehicle came from behind and ran into Cruz’s scooter, causing him to roll down the road. Witnesses said that the driver pulled up to look at Cruz but then got back into the vehicle and drove away. Another person pulled up and then fled the scene after checking on Cruz.
At this time, the family believes that the driver was in a white American-made vehicle that could have damage to the hood and grill.
