St. Augustine Beach Skateboarder Killed in Hit-and-Run

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 14, 2015

In mid-June, a young man was struck by a vehicle in St. Augustine Beach and killed. The accident was a hit-and-run. The victim, 23-year-old Casey McLendon, was on a skateboard when he was hit by a pickup truck that kept driving. According to witnesses, the crash sounded like a gun going off.

Hit-and-run accidents are one of the most devastating types of accidents, as victims often don’t get justice. In this case, the accident ended in the death of a young man. If you are lucky enough to be in good condition after a hit-and-run accident, there are several things you should do.

First, alert the police immediately. The sooner you alert the police, the more likely they will be able to find the driver. You should also get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses. Witnesses can help the police identify the driver and serve as a record that the accident was truly a hit-and-run.

After notifying the police and gathering witnesses, call a personal injury attorney. In hit-and-run accidents it can be hard to obtain proper compensation for your injuries and losses because there is no other party to file a claim against. A personal injury attorney will help you build a strong case and obtain the compensation you deserve.
