Driver leaves 70-year-old pedestrian hit on road

If someone is involved in an accident, the hope is that they'll stop driving, stay at the scene and help. If you've been in a pedestrian accident where you were hurt, then that person staying could have meant the difference between being able to call for help or waiting for someone else to find you. By law, drivers are meant to stay if they are involved in an accident, if for no other reason than to make sure that everyone is okay.

Regardless of the situation, as a pedestrian hurt by a negligent driver, you have the right to seek compensation with the help of your attorney, which can help you get the medical care you need. If the driver decides to flee the scene, charges could be placed by authorities, and you'll have the ability to file a civil lawsuit. If you've lost someone in an accident like this one, then you may be able to be compensated for the cost of a funeral or medical bills.

An MTA bus driver has been accused of a hit-and-run collision that resulted in the death of a 70-year-old woman. The accident, which took place in Brooklyn, was an early morning collision. It was around 6:15 a.m., when the woman was attempting to cross the street.

When the woman was hit, the driver did not stop, according to police. Instead of helping her, the driver, a 48-year-old man, continued on. The woman died at the scene of the accident, while the driver was later arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
