A man tragically lost his life on Tuesday morning after being struck by two vehicles in San Antonio. Initially reported, this horrible incident occurred at Culebra Road and North San Horacio Avenue near St. Mary’s University. According to reports, the man was believed to be in his early 20’s. He sadly got hit by a Dodge pickup truck, and after the vehicle struck him, it drove off. A while later, another automobile drove across the man while he was still lying on the street. This vehicle did not stop either. It drove off. Actively responding to the scene, the authorities found the man lying in the middle of the street when they arrived. The man lost his life due to the tremendous injuries he suffered.
Unfortunately, distracted driving is a massive issue in San Antonio. Those who choose to drive inattentively plague our streets and, through their sheer carelessness, cause a great deal of unnecessary pain and suffering. Fleeing after an accident and refusing to take responsibility for the actions one causes is an unfortunate reality.
In recent years, many hit-and-run drivers have been distracted just before their tragic accidents, according to collected testimonies. Eating, texting on their phones, and talking to their friends are all things these drivers may be doing right before facing the utter shock of an auto accident. But unfortunately, these drivers often panic and drive off, not facing what they have just done.
There are numerous reasons someone may choose to drive off rather than face the accident they have caused. However, This does not excuse them from their wrongdoings or legal liability. The results of hit-and-run accidents often leave the victims devastated and uncertain how they can receive justice for what happened to them. It isn’t easy to know what steps to take when faced with injuries and life-shattering realities after a hit-and-run accident.
