Posted on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019 at 9:47 pm    

Authorities have named the victim in a hit-and-run collision last Saturday morning in El Paso.

The victim, identified as 19-year-old Joel Olivas, was a graduate of Horizon High School, a local news source reported.

At around 2:15 a.m., emergency crews responded to 810 Pendale Road for a major pedestrian accident. According to reports, the pedestrian, Joel Olivas, was walking through a parking lot of a Lower Valley nightclub when a pickup truck ran him over. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

The driver of the pickup truck did not stop to render aid to the victim. Instead, he made a northbound turn to Pendale Road and fled the scene. Police have yet to identify the driver and locate his vehicle.

Anyone with details surrounding the incident is encouraged to call the El Paso police officials.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the family and relatives of the deceased victim. May God grant you the strength you need to get through this difficult moment in your life. We strongly believe that authorities will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time.
