Young woman dies in recent pedestrian accident

Authorities are looking for the driver of a car that they believe was involved in a hit-and-run accident that left one woman dead. The accident happened just days again in the early morning hours in Fabens. A woman's body was found in the middle of the road. She is believed to have been walking along North Loop Drive when she was hit by a car. She died at the scene of the accident.

People who witnessed the accident say that the driver's car sustained damage. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is asking for help from the public.

If and when the driver is found, they are likely to face criminal charges. However, that is likely not where their legal problems will end. The victim's family may choose to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver. After all, people who drive recklessly and injure others in the process should be held responsible to the fullest extent of the law.

Losing a loved one in a traffic accident is devastating. People may find it difficult to move forward with their lives. Although no amount of money can bring back a lost loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit may alleviate financial burdens that resulted from a fatal accident. It may also give surviving family members some peace of mind knowing that a reckless driver has been held accountable for their actions.

Car accidents involving pedestrians often have tragic results, which is why drivers must remain attentive and cautious to avoid causing serious injuries and death.
