Hit-and-run crashes are some of the most upsetting for victims and their families. In a hit-and-run crash, the driver stops for only a moment or not at all. Then, the driver flees the scene.
There are many moral issues surrounding hit-and-run crashes. For instance, families have no one to hold accountable for the injuries that took place or the deaths of their loved ones. Similarly, if the driver leaves the scene, they aren't rendering aid to someone who likely needs it badly.
Fortunately, a hit-and-run driver was found in this case involving a pedestrian death. An arrest has been made in relation to a deadly hit-and-run crash that happened in Ramona. According to the news, a man had been suspected of hitting a pedestrian and killing her. He fled the scene of the accident, which took place just before 8:30 p.m., close to Highland Valley Road and Handlebar Road.
Officers were dispatched and discovered the woman's body there. Witnesses detailed the suspect's vehicle as being a black Lincoln that sustained front-end damage.
Just after 2:00 a.m., the Lincoln was discovered in a parking lot around 3.5 miles away. A man was arrested under suspicion of causing the collision just a short time later.
In crashes like this one, the police need as much information as you can gather about the person who fled the scene. If you can, keep the vehicle's license plate number, color, make and model at hand, so you can give this information to the police. It could mean the difference between never finding the driver and finding them quickly.
