Pedestrian Killed in Van Nuys Hit and Run Accident

Just after 12AM on Sunday, April 30, 2017, a pedestrian was hit near the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Vanowen Street. Allegedly, the driver who hit the man walked over and saw him seriously wounded and promptly returned to their vehicle and left. The pedestrian was also hit by an MTA bus. Unfortunately, the man died from his injuries.

Reward offered

As you may know, LA offers a hit and run reward program. At the time of this article, there is a $50,000 reward available for information leading to the arrest of the driver who hit the man. If you have information on the person who fled the scene be sure to contact LA Crime Stoppers. Don’t worry, you may remain anonymous.

Who is at fault?

At the time of this article, it is tough to say who was responsible for the death of this pedestrian. Sometimes, pedestrians walk out in front of cars and are responsible. In other cases, both parties had something to do with the crash. And of course, sometimes one or more motorists caused the accident and the pedestrian was not in the wrong at all.

It is important to note that even if police blame the pedestrian does not necessarily mean you can not recover compensation for your injuries.

In many cases, when someone is injured from being hit by a car, insurance companies will attempt to place 100% of the blame on the pedestrian in an effort to pay out as little as possible or even nothing. If this happens to you, it is time to contact a local attorney.
