This morning, a Huntington Park motorcyclist died from the injuries he sustained in a Downey hit-and-run accident. A Los Angeles man driving a pick-up truck ran a red light at the intersection of Florence Avenue and Paramount Boulevard, striking the 23-year-old. Police found the truck driver near the accident scene later and arrested him on suspicion of felony drunk driving, explains an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer.
In the United States, someone dies in a motor vehicle crash involving alcohol every 45 minutes. In 2008, 11, 773 people were killed in such accidents, accounting for 32% of traffic-related fatalities in this country, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That same year, 228 people died and 16,930 people were injured in collisions involving hit-and-run, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
