Please Help! Phoenix Hit-and-Run Victim’s Family Looking for Culprit
Did you know that pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than vehicle passengers to be killed in a car accident on each trip (Center for Disease Control and Prevention 6/17/10)? Or that Arizona’s pedestrian accident fatality rate is 1.82 for every 100,000 residents (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2009)? As Phoenix pedestrian accident attorneys, we see these statistics as more than numbers; these are loved ones, friends, and family members dying in preventable accidents. We encourage drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and any other individuals who may be sharing the roads to please take an extra moment to look around, especially in intersections, urban areas, and during the evening hours, as these are the times and locations in which most Arizona pedestrian accidents happen.
Early Sunday morning a female pedestrian was hit by an unknown white Toyota vehicle and left in the road, seriously injured (AZ Family 11/16/10). It is still not known how long she was in the road before she was discovered. She remains on life support. The family is speaking out, asking for the driver to come forward.
We also are encouraging any witnesses that may have been in the area of 16th Street and Elwood Road around 4am in Phoenix to please share any information you may have regarding the identity of the driver, the vehicle model, year, or license number, or anything else you may have seen. If you call our Hit and Run Tipline, you may be rewarded up to $1,000 if your information leads to the felony arrest and conviction of this driver! Your identity will be protected, as this is a third party, anonymous service. No one, not even us, will know who you are. Please call today if you have any information to help this family.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a Phoenix car accident involving a hit-and-run driver, you may deserve compensation. The Phoenix car crash attorneys at Breyer Law Offices P.C. can provide you with a free consultation, so please don’t hesitate to call us today at (480) 753-4534.
