Sherman Oaks Hit-and-Run Accident Claims the Life of Conor Lynch
James E. Ballidis
Yesterday at around 3:30 p.m., 16-year-old Notre Dame High School student Conor Lynch was struck by a sport utility vehicle while crossing Woodman Avenue in Sherman Oaks. The 18-year-old driver of the SUV, Moran Biton, failed to stop at the scene, instead continuing to travel northbound on Woodman Avenue before being detained by LAPD officers. Unfortunately, Lynch died at the scene of the accident, explains a California pedestrian accident attorney.
According to the California Highway Patrol’s Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Motor Vehicle Traffic Collisions, 247 people died and 22, 091 were injured in hit-and-run collisions in 2008, the year for which the most recent accident statistics are available. 122 of those killed and 2,366 of those injured that year were pedestrians. Drivers must give the right of way to people who are walking, regardless of whether they are using a crosswalk or not; otherwise, they may be held responsible if an accident occurs.
Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer their condolences to the family of Conor Lynch.
