Virginia Beach Hit-and-Run Victim's Family Speaks

An innocent man was killed in a hit and run accident involving a suspect who fled from police in Virginia Beach, VA. The at-fault driver was allegedly involved in a robbery, and police were trying to pull him over. Rather than stopping, the suspect tried to escape apprehension, according to the Daily Press.

The victim’s family has now spoken out about the tragedy and expressed sadness about the disregard the at-fault driver had for the victim’s life.

Even though nothing will bring the victim back, the at-fault driver was captured the next day and charged with felony counts of eluding and hit-and-run, along with homicide.


In cases where a victim loses his or her life due to the carelessness and recklessness of another person, a wrongful death lawyer in Virginia Beach can help the victim’s family establish a case against the at-fault driver. In this case, it appears a man lost his life in a hit and run simply because the suspect was careless in refusing to stop for police. The victim’s family may be entitled to damages for the loss of companionship and the pain and suffering associated with this tragic accident.
