Mind-boggling Indiana hit-and-run bicycle accident

The details are so strange, so heartless, that they simply defy belief. In Indiana's Allen County, police say a hit-and-run crash left a 24-year-old Huntertown man dead on a road early Monday evening.

As if that was not bad enough, police say, after the initial crash, a second vehicle stopped at the site of the bicycle accident and retrieved the man's bicycle and then sped away into the night. Neither driver stopped to see if the man who was lying there dying needed help.

The second vehicle is believed to be a dark minivan, police said. There was no identifying information about the initial vehicle that struck and killed the bicyclist in the short article on a TV station's website.

How could these two drivers be so callous? We do not know. Their cold and unfeeling reactions are beyond comprehension.

We do know that in many cases of hit-and-run accidents surveillance video from nearby businesses or homes can help law enforcement track down the perpetrator. Those who have been so reckless can then face criminal charges.

We also know that sometimes these crashes are caused by distracted or intoxicated drivers, or drivers who are going too fast for road or weather conditions. 

The family that lost a loved one can also hold the perpetrator accountable. With the help of an experienced New Albany attorney, they can pursue a wrongful death claim that holds that person financially responsible for the damage they have done.
