Woman Killed in Hit-and-Run Chicago Car Accident

Friday evening a 48 year old grandmother was struck and killed in a hit and run Chicago car accident as she was crossing a Southwest side street. The woman, Ann Sconza, was “panhandling when the car hit her and fled the scene,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

The police issued an alert for an older model white vehicle, possibly a Pontiac or Buick, which was seen leaving the Chicago car accident scene with a broken windshield.

At this time, no one has come forward claiming responsiblity for the Chicago hit and run.

Chicago Hit and Run Accidents

If you were struck in a Chicago hit-and-run, you should explore your legal options. Over the years, our Chicago car accident lawyers have successfully represented many clients injured in Chicago hit and run and other Chicago car accidents involving drivers who were underinsured or uninsured.

While it is possible that police will eventually locate the party responsible in a Chicago car accident or Chicago hit and run, it is possible to pursue a claim against your insurer even if they do not. There may also be other parties with liability in your Chicago hit and run or other Chicago car accident.

While it is difficult to imagine fleeing the scene of a Chicago car accident, it happens all too often. A few reasons why a driver might commit a Chicago hit and run include

• Panic
• Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or excessive prescription medication
• Existing criminal record
• Fear of the consequences

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Chicago hit and run or other Chicago car accident, you should seek legal assistance. A Chicago car accident lawyer can speak with you about your options.
