Police say the accident occurred just before 11 a.m. on Monday, January 11, 2016. The victim was unresponsive when paramedics arrived on the scene. He was then transported to Allegheny General Hospital where he later died due to the severity of his injuries.
A passenger in the victim’s vehicle and the driver of the vehicle that struck them, were treated by paramedics for minor injuries.
An accident investigation unit is investigating the cause of the crash.
It is important to know that getting out of a vehicle on any road is always dangerous.
If the driver who struck and killed the young man is found at fault, they could face serious criminal charges. The family of the victim may file a civil wrongful death claim.
Filing a claim after losing a loved one will never fill the void that is left. It is not a matter of profiting for the family left behind, but rather recovering. The recovery made can alleviate the unexpected funeral costs and expenses accrued when a loved one passes.
