Passenger thrown from car in hit-and-run car accident

A passenger in a car in Cleveland, Ohio, was flung from the vehicle in an early morning hit-and-run car accident. Police say that the driver of the car later returned to the scene of the accident, but in doing so, ran over the victim again. The victim, a 24-year-old woman, died on the scene. The 28-year-old female driver was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of the accident, as well as aggravated vehicular homicide.

Police believe that, just as so many other Ohio car accidents, alcohol played a role in the accident. They anticipate they may be charging the driver with driving while intoxicated. They also asserted that she was speeding at the time her car rear-ended another vehicle going west on Euclid Avenue, where it intersects with Coltman Road. She allegedly drove off after the impact threw the victim from the car.

Also in the car, according to police, was a man who had suffered a gunshot wound earlier in the evening in an unrelated incident at a club in the East Cleveland area. He was taken to a medical facility for the treatment of his injuries along with the vehicle's driver. Also given medical treatment were three occupants of the rear-ended vehicle. Medical personnel described their injuries as non-life-threatening.

Reckless, speeding and intoxicated drivers endanger other motorists, their own passengers, pedestrians and everyone on the streets and highways, Pursuing personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against such drivers can not only provide compensation to the victims and their families, but also help to deter such conduct.
