Civil Lawsuit Filed Against Hit And Run Driver

Posted:

A civil lawsuit has been filed against a driver that has been accused of a hit and run accident that resulted in the death of a pensioner. The thirty million dollar lawsuit was filed in Montgomery County Circuit Court with regards to the accident that took place late last year in Rockville where the hit and run allegedly occurred.

Following a preliminary hearing a settlement hearing in relation to the case has been scheduled for March of next year. The accused, David Marc Friedlander, forty-one years old, is accused of mowing down the woman in a bakery vehicle and failing to stop.

Sixty-nine year-old Ketty Emilce Alvarado was killed as a result of the hit and run accident. She was dragged for nearly a mile and a half by the vehicle according to reports. Both the driver and his employer are being sued, and the family are seeking ten million dollars in compensatory damages, ten million dollars in punitive damages, and ten million dollars for wrongful death.

The company for which the driver worked also issued a statement following the accident, reading: ‘‘H&S Bakery continues to have the deepest sympathy for the family of Mrs. Alvarado. As the proceedings to determine what happened that morning are ongoing, we are unable to discuss any specific details,” the statement continues. “We can only say we have, and will continue to, cooperate fully with the authorities.”
