Search For Hit-and-Run Driver Continues
Posted on Aug 23, 2010
At about 2:25 a.m. on the morning of July 17, Kenneth Lindeman, a night watchman for the Gramercy Apartments in Anaheim, was crossing Westminster Boulevard at Milan Street when he was fatally struck by a vehicle, reported the Orange County Register. The hit-and-run driver still has not been identified. Westminster detectives are asking anyone with information about the accident to contact Investigator Al Brackett at 714-548-3830.
Hit-and-run accidents took the lives of 228 people and left 16,930 injured in 2008, according to the California Highway Patrol's most recent records. Such accidents can have a devastating impact on the family of the accident victim, as there is no driver to hold accountable for the exorbitant cost of treating the accident victim's injuries, or for the absence of the injured family member's contribution to the family--not to mention the grief and emotional pain suffered by the family.
Coworkers described Kenneth Lindeman as an individual who was full of love and happiness and often tried to cheer up those around him. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.
