Another Unfortunate Hit And Run Takes A Life

Another Unfortunate Hit And Run Takes A Life

A woman recently died after a car crashed into her on the early morning of October 18th, reported The Press-Enterprise in an online article.  The crash was reported just after 1 a.m. on Mountain View Avenue and Base Line. The driver that hit the woman drove off but police soon caught up with him and were able to arrest him. Police records indicate he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and hit-and-run. The woman was taken to the hospital due to her serious injuries, but despite medical professionals care, she later died. Law enforcement is still actively looking into the case to find out any information that can better shed light on the details of the incident.

Despite criminal charges that will almost certainly be brought by the District Attorney, the driver at fault can also face personal injury claims from victims including the possibility of a wrongful death claim. Even beyond that, DMV administrative license hearings can be the only way for the driver to maintain their license. The driver would have to appear in court and face costly criminal charges that could follow him for the rest of his life. If convicted, he could have to spend time in prison as the accident took the life of another driver.

After traffic accidents involving death, the California DMV attempts to automatically suspend or revoke a drivers license at “fatality hearings”. If the accident resulted in no death, the DMV would do similar, but it would be what they call an Administrative Hearing for the DUI alone. This is separate from criminal and civil charges and strictly deals with the DMV and the driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle on the roadways. The California DMV is obligated to keep drivers safe by removing unsafe drivers and they do this by suspending or even revoking unsafe driver’s license in order to keep the streets clean and safe of danger. Fatality hearings are a sub category of negligent operator hearings. They can be costly not only financially, especially if one does not find a team to expertly represent them at the DMV’s hearings. With so much on the line from drivers in question, they will want to immediately find a qualified team who will invest their full time and effort into ensuring the client will receive the best outcome to their case at the California DMV.
