U of C student killed by hit-and-run driver

A 21-year-old student at the University of Cincinnati was killed as he attempted to cross Interstate 71 by the William Howard Taft Road ramp. The victim was struck by a car driven by a 21-year-old woman who then fled the scene. Investigators working on the car accident later found the vehicle abandoned at a gas station on Montgomery Road.

When investigators contacted the owner of the car, a 26-year-old man, it was revealed that the young woman was driving and that the owner and two other passengers were in the vehicle at the time. The driver was arrested for failure to stop at the scene of an accident while the owner was charged with both failure to maintain insurance on the vehicle and for an outstanding Mariemont traffic citation. Investigators believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Hit-and-run accidents are particularly devastating to the victims and the families left behind in a fatal crash. Without being able to identify or confront the driver, many never know who was responsible for the injury and death caused by these terrible collisions. In some cases, police are able to track down the driver, but in many cases, the guilty party is never found.

Victims of hit-and-run accidents or their survivors may wish to consult a personal injury attorney about the accident. Victims of these accidents may be entitled to damages from the at-fault driver or payments from their own insurance companies. A personal injury lawyer may be able to assist the victims or families in collecting these damages.
