Woman in custody following fatal accident in parking lot

When someone experiences the loss of a loved one in California, it is often tragic and emotional. However, these types of circumstances can be increasingly difficult to overcome when their loved one's death is the result of someone else's negligence or ignorance. 

This was exactly what happened in a recent parking lot incident that occurred in Henderson, Nevada. Authorities say an elderly woman was in the parking lot of a local supermarket when she was struck by a U-Haul truck. Soon after the situation was reported, the woman received medical aid and was transported to a local hospital. A short time later, she died as a result of the injuries she sustained. The driver of the U-Haul left the scene immediately after the accident occurred, but authorities successfully tracked her down soon after she had left. She was immediately arrested and booked into a local detention center. She is currently being held on charges related to leaving the scene of an accident, failing to notify authorities and denying aid to the injured woman. It is not currently known which charges she will officially be charged with pending a thorough investigation of the accident.

If people have family members who have been injured at the hands of someone who has made a careless decision, they may benefit from the assistance of a qualified attorney. Relying on the professional experience of a legal expert can provide needed guidance in creating a case.
