The 14-year-old girl has been traveling to the Pacific High School at the time of the accident. She was walking near the intersection of Glasgow and Pacific Street when the vehicle suddenly struck her. Police say that Maldonado was in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident.

The driver was traveling around 50 mph at the time. The motorist also did not stop to render aid at the scene of the accident.

Maldonado was quickly rushed to the Loma Linda University Medical Center and underwent surgery, but sadly died due to her injuries.

Police are still searching for the driver of the suspect vehicle.

San Bernardino Hit-and-Run 

We wish to first extend our condolences to the family of Jade Maldonado at this time as they go through a difficult experience. You have many rights if you are the family of somebody who has lost their life in a serious accident.

Hit-and-run drivers have committed one of the most traumatic and awful crimes on our roadways. If a driver was responsible for causing a crash but did not stop at the scene, they will receive criminal charges if they were found. This means that this will pave the way toward a family being able to bring a wrongful death claim for civil damages, which will help them compensate during this difficult time.

Family members might be eligible for aspects like lost wages, funeral costs, hospital bills, loss of companionship, and more. If you decide to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one, you don’t want to do it alone. Call us today at the Los Angeles Injury Group to find out how we can help you in your time of need at 310-954-7248.
