Hit-and-run accident takes life of Collinsville man

The family and friends of a young Collinsville man are probably in grief after learning of his tragic death last week. The young man was on his way home from work when he was killed in a hit-and-run accident. When he did not come home from work by the next morning, his roommates called the country club where he worked. The young man's employer also did not know where he was. The man's roommates then called the police.

Just several hours later, the young man's body was found near where was dropped off after work. A report indicates that he was killed around 2:30 in the morning on Highway 157. Reports do not indicate exactly what happened just before or after this young man was killed. However, police are looking for a Ford SUV or pickup truck from the early 2000s and are asking anyone to report sightings of a vehicle fitting the description.

When a fatal hit-and-run accident occurs, the most frustrating thing for family and friends of the victim may be not knowing exactly what happened. The victim's family and friends may wonder whether the driver of the vehicle was drunk or even aware that he or she had hit a person. They might wonder where exactly their friend was when he was hit by the vehicle.

These types of unanswered questions may make it very difficult to move forward after this type of accident. The young man's loved ones are likely feeling extensive amounts of pain and grief and probably will for months and years to come.

When a person loses a loved one in a hit-and-run accident like this, the pain and suffering that one endures may be able to be compensated by filing a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an experienced attorney.
