A hit-and-run motor vehicle accident tragically claimed the life of Joey Williams, 33, in the early morning hours of January 27, 2019.
Patch.com is reporting “[t]he victim was struck from behind…around 3:45 am as he was walking down the side of Lindbergh Drive in the 1000 block.” The victims partner and witness identified the victim as “33-year-old Joey Williams,” according to Fox5Atlanta.com. The suspect did not stop, and police are still looking for the vehicle. Authorities believe that “the suspect was driving a white truck…parts left on the scene belong to a 2012 to 2015 Toyota Tacoma.”
Our Legal Take.
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and assuming authorities will locate the driver that fled the scene, Mr. Williams’ family may seek justice and elect to file civil claims for his wrongful death. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Williams’ family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests..
