Harrowing car accident leaves 2 dead; 2 pending felony charges

Most car accidents fall under the category of an honest mistake. However, some car accidents are such blatant egregious errors that felony charges are filed in connection with the crash. This proved true for a couple from Reno that were recently killed in a car accident on McCarran Boulevard. The driver and passenger who caused the crash are being held in county jail after fleeing the scene of the car accident.

It happened when the victims' disabled Pontiac was pulled over on the side of the I-80. A Ford F-350 merging from McCarran Boulevard struck the Pontiac and the two occupants inside, with the truck coming completely over the top of the car. The driver and passenger fled the scene and the driver is now being held on $100,000 bail. Had the driver and passenger not fled the scene, their charges may have been less severe.

Regardless, it doesn't change the fact that two young people lost their lives on I-80 in a senseless accident. An investigation is being conducted by the proper authorities. For family and friends of the deceased, it is a very difficult time. It may give them some sense of relief to see the two people connected to the crash facing charges in relation to the hit-and-run.

If you or a family member have been injured by a negligent or drunk driver, then you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries through a personal injury lawsuit. It may be helpful for you to contact an attorney to help you through the process.
