Alamo police say a 60-year-old Donna man was killed when he was struck a vehicle. According to a police department news release, the accident happened June 10 in the 1300 block of west Frontage Road 83 at around 3:47 a.m.

The victim is identified as Alfredo Villalpando of Donna. The police report says Villalpando was struck by a Ford F-150 and that he was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver remained at the scene, according police, and was not expected to face charges.


Tort claims when the other driver is not cited

A traffic citation can serve as evidence that another driver’s negligence caused your accident, or an accident that caused the death of a loved one.  However, it is not the only evidence that can show fault.

You can still pursue a personal injury claim for yourself or a wrongful death claim if an immediate family member is killed even if the defendant was not cited after the accident.

Police investigating crashes sometimes miss critical evidence, and in cases where there are conflicting accounts of what happened, and a citation might not be issued. The police report may indicate whether any other factors, including possible traffic violations, may have contributed to the accident.

It might include an at-fault driver’s statement admitting he or she caused the accident. Another example would be if one the at-fault driver’s passengers admitted that the driver was speeding or recklessly operating their motor vehicle.
