A man was struck and killed Monday morning by a hit-and-run driver on S. Capitol Street near its intersection with Martin Luther King Avenue in Southwest, D.C. The victim was found lying in the street. Police believe he was struck by a Mercedes Benz, which may have front end damage as a result of the collision.
If you know anything about this collision, please report what you know to the police.
I represent victims of reckless driving every day. It is important for the family of this man to obtain witness statements as well as any video surveillance footage before the video is destroyed. Securing such video can be critical to the case.
Every year I give presentations to lawyers about the use of video in automobile cases. My goal is to teach attorneys the most effective ways to obtain and use videos in order to promote justice.
Our thoughts are with the victim of this horrible incident and his family.
