[12-31-2020] San Francisco County, CA - Hit-and-Run Accident on Second and Mission Streets Kills TwoAccording to the initial reports from local authorities, the accident happened at Second and Mission streets in the South of Market neighborhood at around 4:00 p.m.

Two women were struck by an unspecified vehicle on the roadway for unclear reasons. The driver did not stop to render aid and fled the scene.

The victims were seriously hurt as a result of the crash. One of the victims died at the scene while the second woman was rushed to an area hospital. She was also later pronounced dead.

Local authorities are currently pursuing the hit-and-run driver.

Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident Investigation is Underway

The San Francisco Police Department is currently investigating the case. Anyone who can give more information about the accident will contact the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and start the message with SFPD.

It is apparent in this case that the liability falls on the hit-and-run driver for leaving the victim wounded and fleeing the scene. The suspect will most likely face criminal charges once caught.

Leaving the scene after an accident is a crime in itself. Unfortunately, around one in five pedestrian accidents are caused by hit-and-run drivers. Sixty percent of people killed in hit-and-run accidents are pedestrians. Common reasons why hit-and-run drivers flee the scene are intoxication, driving without a license, and fear of getting arrested if they remain.

It is essential to have a wrongful accident attorney conduct an independent investigation for the victims to ensure winning the case. Attorneys are capable of assisting their clients throughout the process. They will also re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain the responsible party’s phone and texting records.

Wrongful Death Attorney for Victims of Fatal Hit-and-Run Accidents in San Francisco

The sudden death of a loved one can be quite devastating for the victim’s family. It may leave them vulnerable to manipulation by both insurance companies and other parties. To avoid this, it is necessary to have an attorney by your side to fight for your rights.

Pending the official investigation results, the victim’s family is encouraged to pursue a wrongful death claim with their attorney’s help. Through the wrongful death claim, the victim’s family can seek compensation for the damages (such as loss of income and companionship, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and emotional distress) that the fatal hit and run accident has caused them.
