Car accidents can happen out of nowhere, and they can have fatal consequences. It is vital to remember that reckless driving can cause serious injury and can also have deadly impacts. This is why all drivers must remain attentive at all times and remember the duty of care they have to others around them.

Desir was walking on Morton Street when a driver struck him. The vehicle that struck him did not stop. Upon arrival, first responders secured the scene and begin the investigation.
