Oceanside, CA – Michael Barney Dies After Hit-and-Run

Pedestrian hit-and-run on Prospect AvenueOceanside, CA (August 12, 2018) – A pedestrian injured in a hit and run last month has died from his injuries.  On Saturday, police identified the pedestrian as 56-year-old Michael Barney.  Barney’s injuries stemmed from a July 6th hit-and-run accident on Mission Avenue.

When police arrived, they located Barney lying in the roadway with critical injuries.   Barney was struck around 11:50 pm.  Barney remained hospitalized following the collision.  Ultimately, he never recovered and eventually succumbed to his injuries.

The suspect vehicle is described as a black colored sedan.  Police are still searching for the responsible driver, but have been unable to locate them at this time.

There is no further information available.

Fatal Accidents in California

Our thoughts and condolences are with the family of Michael Barney.  Tragically, Barney was involved in a serious crash and the responsible driver failed to act properly by leaving the scene.

All drivers have a legal duty to remain at the scene of a crash, even if the crash was not their fault.  Police normally begin their traffic investigation by speaking with the involved drivers.  There are many reasons a driver flees an accident scene, including that the driver did not have a license, was impaired, or was otherwise unwilling to be confronted by a police officer.
