Woman Struck and Killed In Bizarre Accident
An unidentified woman was struck and killed by a car driven by an unidentified man. The specifics of the accident are yet unknown. The male driver was also critically injured.
Might the deceased woman’s family have a valid wrongful death lawsuit?
The answer to this question depends largely on the outcome of the investigation to determine what exactly happened and the cause of the accident.
