Teen killed by hit-and-run driver

Many people in the Cary area walk to their destination. Pedestrians are everywhere, whether they're going to church, to school, their jobs, a store, or just enjoying a leisurely stroll. Most of the time pedestrians are able to safely share the road with other drivers. But occasionally a serious fatal accident occurs where a pedestrian is killed.

A 15-year-old is dead after he was hit crossing Rock Quarry Road between Sanderford Road and Southgate Drive in nearby Raleigh. The boy was a freshman at Sanderson High school and was on his way to class when he was hit by a driver who drove away. The boy was taken to a local hospital where he later died. The driver was later arrested and has been charged with felony hit-and-run resulting in death and obstructing justice.

No one expects their loved one will be killed in an unexpected accident. Unfortunately, hundreds of North Carolina residents are affected by this situation each year. If a family believes their loved one was killed in an accident due to no fault of the victim, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can investigate the cause of the accident by visiting the accident scene, interviewing witnesses and reviewing the police report. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

When a loved one is taken too soon a family can feel at a loss. Not only are they grieving the loss of a loved one, they are also facing thousands of dollars of unexpected expenses. It can be important to hold a negligent driver responsible for their mistake so that they don't harm anyone else.
