Woman arrested for alleged hit-and-run

The female victim of a hit-and-run in Massachusetts was pronounced dead on Oct. 24. The 26-year-old woman died at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center around 11 a.m. The incident occurred on the night of Oct. 22. Local reports claim that this is the sixth pedestrian accident to occur in Brockton since August.

Following this most recent hit-and-run, police received a license plate number from a witness. Officers then found the vehicle that matched this license plate damaged and parked in a driveway. It was towed to police headquarters to be logged as evidence. Police also apprehended the 53-year-old woman whom they believed was driving while under the influence of alcohol when she allegedly struck the victim.

The woman was charged with drunk driving causing serious injury, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. She posted bail on Oct. 23 and was released under the stipulations that she'd refrain from possessing or consuming alcohol. The court clerk's office also stated that she agreed to allow a probation officer to visit her home unannounced.

Surviving relatives of anyone killed in a fatal car accident may benefit from filing a wrongful death claim against the driver who caused the crash. Depending on their relationship with the decedent, a surviving spouse, children, parents or siblings may be entitled to receive restitution to help account for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs and other hardships caused by the death.
