Driver Commits Fatal Hit-and-Run Auto Pedestrian Accident
Oklahoma City, OK (January 11, 2019) On the morning of January 11th, a fatal hit-and-run auto-pedestrian accident happened near Southwest 38th Street and South Pennsylvania Avenue. Unfortunately, a pickup truck fled the scene after striking 60-year-old Tamara Michele Paulson as she walked out of Braum’s Ice Cream & Burger and headed to a nearby bus stop.
Some of the employees from Braum’s claims that Paulson lived three blocks away and came to the shop every morning.
The police are searching for an older model white Chevy pickup truck with a missing grill and right headlight that fell off after striking Paulson.
We send our condolences to Paulson’s family as they work to get through this devastating time.
Auto-Pedestrian Accidents in Oklahoma
When drivers commit hit-and-run pedestrian accidents, they flee the scene because they are afraid of facing the consequences of their negligent accidents, especially if the pedestrian had the right of way. Most of the time drivers are at fault in pedestrian accidents, even if the pedestrian wasn’t walking in a cross walk. Because drivers know this, some of them would rather flee the scene instead of render aid to the hit victim and potentially help save their life by calling 911.
Once the police arrest the driver responsible, Paulson’s family could file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an Oklahoma wrongful death attorney.
