An 89 year old Redondo Beach woman, Melania Nuhbegovic, was hit by a car in Redondo Beach on Monday. Ms. Nuhbegovic later died of her injuries at Harbor UCLA medical center.
According to the Daily Breeze, the woman was crossing in a crosswalk when she was hit by a pickup truck in Redondo Beach. According to investigators, the driver of the pickup truck stopped at the stop sign, but then drove and hit Ms. Nuhbegovic. He did not flee the scene and stopped to render care to the victim.
The driver was not cited and investigators said it did not appear that the driver was under the influence at the time of the Redondo Beach wrongful death accident.
If investigators are able to determine that the driver was negligent in operating his vehicle, leading to the death of this pedestrian crossing the street, Ms. Nuhbegovic’s heirs may make a claim for the wrongful death in Redondo Beach against the driver of the pickup truck. Hopefully, the driver has sufficient automobile insurance coverage to cover the extensive wrongful death damages that are incurred.
