Dallas Hit-and-Run Accident Leaves One Dead

A man pushing a wheelchair on the east side of Forest Lane in Dallas, Texas, was hit and drugged for at least three blocks at around 9:30 PM on July 21st.

The accident occurred near the intersection of Forest Lane and Cromwell Drive. The man finally fell off the car when it turned south onto Marsh Lane. The driver did not stop, but police later arrested him at Elan at Bluffview Apartments located at 3850 NW Highway. The Elan at Bluffview Apartments is approximately four miles from the initial crash scene. 

The driver allegedly drove a white Chevrolet Malibu, damaging its hood and front end. The man pushing the wheelchair died on the scene while first responders transported the female in the wheelchair to a local hospital. The Dallas Police Department charged the driver with an accident causing death and an accident causing severe bodily injury.

Personal Injury Lawyers Help Ease Pain and Suffering After an Injury or Wrongful Death

The family of the victim and the woman who was seriously injured have had their lives changed forever. It may take a dedicated lawyer to figure out how a new personal injury further compounds pre-existing conditions. 

While nothing can change the pain that they are experiencing, they deserve compensation. If the woman lives, she will have ongoing medical expenses that must be paid. Additional nursing care may be required if the man cared for the woman. Before heading into court, it is vital that they contact a Dallas personal injury lawyer.
