The morning of June 28th in St. Louis, Missouri, Bapi Gupta was crossing the street in front of a popular downtown restaurant when he was stuck by a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. Furthermore, after the pedestrian accident, the person who struck Gupta fled the scene. Since the pedestrian accident, Gupta has died following injuries including a fractured skill and coma.
In addition, the person who is responsible for Gupta’s death has luckily since been caught, and it is a 15-year-old girl who was not even old enough to be behind the wheel. The teen was eventually caught following the release of surveillance photos and videos showing the vehicles on the street just before Gupta was hit. Gupta's friend and co-worker, Matt Ratz hopes that this senseless hit-and-run accident will send a word to others who may be involved in a similar situation to just come forward instead of fleeing the scene of a pedestrian accident.
