Driver invovled in fatal accident in California still on the run

A fatal accident can happen in a lot of different ways, but they almost always leave families shaken and trying to cope with their grief. In some cases, an individual can be at fault and may be held either criminally or civilly liable -- or even both. One recent California car crash has tragically turned into a fatal accident and authorities are seeking the driver believed to have committed a hit-and-run.

The two-vehicle crash happened in the early hours of the morning when a person driving a truck crashed into a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old man. The driver of the truck that appears to have caused the crash fled the scene of the accident and has yet to be found. Police are now searching for the person who witnesses described as a male driver. Witnesses said another male that was a passenger in the truck fled on foot as well.

The young man was said to have been a veterinary student and was less than a mile from his home after leaving work when the accident occurred. Sadly, this young man's life was ended before he was able to start his career and enjoy the vocation he was going to school to achieve. The family is now left to deal with the emotional grief and possible financial strain as a result of an individual's actions.

As the investigation continues and California police continue to search for the driver, the family may wish to look into filing a civil suit against the driver once that person's identity is confirmed. Although the driver will likely face charges for the fatal accident, the family could proceed with a wrongful death action in order to collect monetary compensation to help with burial expenses and any other accident-related expenses. Even though compensation can't bring their loved one back, it could at least help ease the financial strain as they attempt to move forward with their lives.
