As Peoria pedestrian accident attorneys, we hear too often about car accidents costing the lives of much-loved family members. Losing a child has to be the most difficult thing for a family to go through.
A Peoria family and high school has lost one of their own this past weekend. An 18 year old boy was walking home from work on Friday night when he was hit by an SUV (ABC 15 10/31/10). The driver took off, and the boy was taken to the hospital where he died on Sunday from his injuries. Police say the SUV jumped the sidewalk where he was walking, struck the boy, and fled the scene. The vehicle is now in custody and the police have identified the driver, thanks to tips from the community. They have not made arrests yet pending evidence collection and processing.
Our thoughts are with the family, friends, and peers of this Peoria teen during this difficult time.
Accidents such as this one make us wish we could do something more to help the families of these victims, so we are now sponsors of the Hit and Run Tip line and Reward program. With helpful tips from the community, the culprit for this teen’s death has been found, and others can too. We are offering a reward for any tips leading to the arrest of a hit and run driver. If you call to share information, you will be completely anonymous.
It is an easy to use, anonymous hit-and-run reporting system called Hit-and-Run Reward. Anonymously give your information to one of our facilitators and it will be passed on to the appropriate police agency. You could earn a reward and no one, not even us, will know who you are.
If you have lost a loved one due to a hit and run driver, please call us today for a free consultation. We may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. The consultation is free, you only have information to gain by calling us today at (480) 753-4534.
