Two killed in hit and run on I-15

A tragic display of the right and wrong way to react to a terrible accident played out on interstate 15 the early morning hours of Sept. 10. A mother, her two young children, and the children's grandmother were headed southbound on the 15 when they were struck by a man in a Cadillac. The driver of the Cadillac stopped for just a moment after the collision, before fleeing the scene.

An already bad situation then took a heartbreaking turn. The Honda was disabled on the interstate. Mere moments after the first collision, a man driving a red pickup truck (the make and model are unknown), did not see the Honda disabled on the roadway, and plowed into the vehicle. Despite the horrific nature of this accident, the driver of the truck is to be commended for choosing to stay at the scene of the accident, unlike the driver of the Cadillac.

When rescue crew arrived, the passengers of the Honda had to be carefully removed, because the vehicle had been mangled so badly. Tragically, the grandmother and the youngest of the two girls did not survive the two crashes.

The driver of the Cadillac was later found in his home, and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Sadly, these events illustrate how anyone can be placed in danger by the reckless actions of a drunk driver.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. For those who are exploring their options for compensation, the guidance of an experienced California personal injury lawyer can help ensure that their case is heard fairly and their rights remain protected.
