San Diego Man Won’t Be Charged in Hit-and-Run Case

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

The San Diego district attorney’s office has decided not to file charges against a ninety-two-year-old man who identified himself as the possible driver in a hit-and-run accident earlier this year, a local news story reports.

In January 2010, a 15-year-old teenager from Vista was skateboarding on Thibodo Road with three friends when a white Toyota Camry hit the teen from behind, then drove off. The severely injured young man was rushed to the hospital but did not survive his injuries.

The day after the San Diego accident, the ninety-two-year old man told police that he may have been driving the car that struck the teenager, but he was unsure. The man said that he had struck something while driving the previous night, which he thought had been some kind of inanimate object or perhaps an owl. The man did not stop to determine what he had hit.

The district attorney’s office decided not to charge the driver with committing a hit and run after reviewing the case and discussing it with the victim’s family. The district attorney decided there was not enough evidence to support a criminal charge in the potential San Diego car accident.

Those who are injured in hit-and-run car or pedestrian accidents are entitled to seek compensation from the person responsible for their injuries.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
