Brother of NFL player dies in hit-and-run car accident

Leaving the scene of an accident is not only unlawful, but it can also be unconscionable at times. The victim of a hit-and-run car accident may be left alone without medical care for extended periods, and the results of a delay in treatment can be disastrous. The brother of a Philadelphia Eagles player has died following a recent crash involving similar circumstances in Tennessee.

Authorities have advised that the incident took place at around 3:30 a.m. on a recent Tuesday when a driver lost control of his van and crossed into oncoming lanes. The van proceeded to strike a nearby car head-on at an intersection shortly thereafter. The driver of the car died at the scene of the crash, and authorities assert that the man who caused the accident attempted to walk away from the scene on foot.

Police located the man soon thereafter and assert that he was exhibiting signs of impairment. They advised that he admitted to drinking alcohol prior to driving, and he was taken into custody on suspicion of driving while under the influence. In addition to drunk driving, he also faces charges for vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of a crash.

Losing someone close in a fatal car accident can be a devastating experience, especially when the loss comes at the hands of a negligent driver. Those who experience such loss could choose to speak with an experienced attorney for guidance on their available legal avenues. An attorney can examine the situation thoroughly and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the full amount of restitution deserved through a wrongful death claim against the party deemed responsible.
