As many people were beginning to enjoy their weekend Friday night, one man was killed when a hit and run accident occurred in the Central West End. St. Louis police were called to the area of Lindell Boulevard and N. Sarah Street at approximately 10:25 p.m. Officers had the devastating job of pronouncing the pedestrian deceased. The vehicle responsible for the accident fled the scene and authorities are urging any witnesses to come forward with information.
Victims and their family members are outraged when they suffer damages in a hit and run accident. While many auto accidents occur as a result of a negligent mistake, fleeing the scene of the crash an action that is selfish and done with full intent. Not only is it required by law to remain at the accident scene, but it is also important to determine if the other individuals involved require medical attention.
