Body Found in St. Charles County

A man’s body was discovered on Thursday in St. Charles County and authorities determined the death was caused by a hit and run accident. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, 35-year-old Shawn Daugherty had attending the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game and hung out with friends when he attempted to travel home late Wednesday night. On his commute home, his truck broke down and he exited the vehicle to walk for assistance. Reports indicate that there were a couple of emergency calls regarding the stalled vehicle and a man walking along Highway 370 between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Thursday morning. An officer located the vehicle, but did not find Daugherty. His body was discovered some time later and authorities are now searching for the driver and vehicle responsible for this fatal accident.

Hit and run accidents occur thousands of times each year and are increasing in frequency. Drivers involved in auto accidents are required by law to remain at the scene of the accident and provide personal information. Individuals who flee the scene of an accident are now causing a hit and run accident. Recovering compensation for damages may be difficult without knowing the identity of the responsible driver.
