LegalLaw247.com, August 10, 2013 ) GREENVILE, S.C. — A Columbia woman has been identified as the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Columbia, the Coroner’s Office reported to WISTV Channel 10 recently.
56-year-old Diane Scott was walking along Hardscrabble Road around 10 p.m. the night of August 6 when a pickup truck hit her. The driver, 27-year-old Tres Reep, fled the scene, leaving Scott to die from her injuries. Three hours later, Reep was identified and taken into custody.
The cause of Reep’s negligence has not yet been identified, but at the time of the report the Highway Patrol’s Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team is actively seeking more information regarding the details of the case.
The law firm of Standeffer & Harbin believes that the reckless actions of South Carolina hit-and-run drivers should not be overlooked, and Scott may very well have lived if Reep had not fled the scene.
If you or a loved one has experienced injury or wrongful death because of the negligent behavior of a hit-and-run driver, you may have a claim for personal injury because of the pain, suffering and mental anguish that were inflicted upon you by their thoughtless actions.
