Man Killed In a Hit-and-Run Accident on 605 Freeway In Whittier

A man was killed during the early morning hours on October 24, 2016 in a hit-and-run accident. The accident occurred on the 605 Freeway in Whittier, causing both cars to catch fire. The California Highway Patrol received a call around 2 a.m. on reports of a car accident on the freeway near Slauson Avenue. The caller told the CHP that a black Chevrolet Camaro was driving recklessly and weaving in and out of traffic.Hit and Run Accident Attorney

One of the drivers of the two cars that crashed was killed. Firefighters were able to pull three other people to safety. The driver of the Camaro fled the scene of the accident. No description of the driver was available. The cause of the accident is unknown and under investigation.

5 Things To Do After a Hit-and-Run Accident

Getting into an accident can be one of the most frustrating and upsetting types of accidents. As if it wasn’t bad enough that you got into an accident in the first place, it is even more distressing for the at-fault driver to have flown the scene.

A hit-and-run accident involves a situation when a driver hits a pedestrian, property or another car, or causes an accident, and then either leaves the scene or fails to provide truthful information. Below are 5 things you should do if you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident:

1.Pull over to safety. You should not attempt to chase or apprehend after the party who fled the scene. This can make the situation exponentially worse.

2.Call the police. Once you have pulled over to safety, you should immediately call the police. Failing to contact the police, even if you don’t have any description of the other driver, can result in your insurance company dragging out the claims process or denying it altogether.

3.Gather evidence. It is particularly important to gather information in hit-and-run accidents. You should also write down everything you can remember about the accident, such as:

  • What happened immediately before and after the accident
  • Details of the other vehicle
  • The license plate of the other vehicle, or as many numbers on it as you can remember
  • The make and model of the car
  • What the driver looked like – or as accurate a description as possible

4.Look for witnesses. It is important to get the complete contact information of any witnesses to the accident.

5.Contact your insurance company. After contacting the police, you should file a claim with your insurance company as well, especially if you have the right coverage.
