On June 27, 2022, at approximately 5 am, a man was struck in a hit-and-run accident and left in the road on Morris Bridge Road in Temple Terrace. It is believed the pedestrian was then struck by a second vehicle which also left the scene of the accident. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are currently investigating video surveillance tapes in the area to determine the responsible parties.
Hit and Run Events
Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime. The seriousness of the crime increases when a personal injury occurs from the accident. In this case, since the pedestrian died from their injuries, the person who left the scene could be charged with something as serious as vehicular homicide.
Most hit-and-run cases are solved by the police. Security footage or witnesses are able to identify the vehicle from the accident, which leads to a subsequent arrest. At the time of arrest, the accused will need criminal defense services to help them present their case to the court and secure the best possible outcome to the charges.
