Losing a loved one can be an extremely painful situation, especially if their death was caused by a hit-and-run accident. Not only will you live a life without this person at your side, but you will have to deal with the stress of medical and funeral fees. A family in Plano may be too familiar with this situation after their loved one, a victim of a hit-and-run accident, died in a hospital after sustaining serious injury.

Danger at the Wheel

The night of April 17th turned tragic when a 22-year-old man drove into four people in a parking lot on northbound Central Expressway. According to witnesses, the man was giving problems to the bouncers at a bar moments before entering his car, seemingly agitated. Sources are unsure if he lost control of his vehicle or purposely drove into the four pedestrians in a fit of anger.

After the accident, the man drove away but was later caught and arrested by police. He was charged with intoxicated driving and causing an accident involving injury but the developing events may bring additional charges. The death of a 23-year-old victim who suffered the most serious injuries, could potentially bring more charges for the alleged wrongdoer to worry about.
