Teen killed in multi-collision hit and run in a Harris County

Do you remember when you were still getting your driver's license? You needed to pass the written and practical driving tests first before you received legal driving privileges. These tests are not only given to make sure that you have knowledge of the rules and regulations of driving, but also to ensure that you become a responsible driver in case you get involved in a car accident.

Responsibility was what a witness of a fatal accident asked of the drivers who struck a 14-year-old girl. Multiple vehicles in Harris County reportedly hit the teenager during a particularly rainy night. Having seen that the victim was injured, the witness pulled her vehicle over in an effort to deter other cars from striking the girl.

The witness was horrified that, even while her vehicle blocked the lane of traffic, other drivers pulled around and still ran over the victim. The witness could not understand how additional drivers could unknowingly run over the teen, especially since the girl was not particularly small in frame.

Hit-and-run accidents can be extremely frustrating because leads and suspects are often difficult to find in the initial stages of the investigation. In this case, police are still probing for evidence relevant to the accident and looking for the drivers who left the scene.

Hit-and-run drivers should be held accountable for their actions. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident because of another driver’s negligence or recklessness, you deserve to be compensated for all the pain and suffering resulting from the crash.
