Police Searching for Suspects in Deadly North St. Louis Hit-and-Run

Hit-and-run accidents have a significant impact beyond the injuries and vehicle damage left behind. The idea that other human beings would callously walk away after causing a car accident leaves everyone in the community shocked and dismayed. Fortunately,

An early morning car crash on MLK Drive in North St. Louis recently resulted in the worst case scenario: a deceased victim and two suspects who got away.

However, the authorities can track down hit-and-run suspects more often than you might think.

In this case, the suspects were witnessed driving their white Chevrolet Impala around 4:30 a.m. on Friday, October 24. The Impala made a T-bone collision with the victim’s vehicle. The decedent, 65-year-old William Brown, had only driven a few blocks from his home and was not breaking any laws.

Unfortunately, the impact threw Brown from his vehicle and he was further injured as the suspects’ vehicle rolled over him.

The white Impala was found abandoned blocks away. St. Louis police have an ongoing investigation and search for the perpetrators.

If you or a family member are ever involved in a hit-and-run accident, it’s important to maintain hope. With the right clues and evidence, the responsible parties can be tracked down. Your St. Louis personal injury attorney can help you seek restitution from guilty parties for the injury and damages they have caused.
