Tyler Rodriguez Identified as Pedestrian Struck and Killed by Hit-and-Run Driver in Danville, IL

Illinois State Police have identified 26-year-old Tyler Rodriguez of Georgetown as the pedestrian who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Danville early Saturday morning. 

According to state police, the hit-and-run crash occurred at approximately 2:03 a.m. on July 4 west of the Henning Road intersection. Rodriguez was reportedly walking west along U.S. Route 150 when he was struck by a silver sedan. The driver did not stop to administer aid and fled the scene. 

Rodriguez died from injuries he sustained in the crash. Police haven’t provided any more information. 

Investigators are still searching for the driver responsible and are asking anyone with information to contact the state police at 217-278-5004. 

Every year across the U.S., thousands of pedestrian accidents result in serious injuries and deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 137,000 pedestrians were treated in hospitals for accident injuries in 2017, and 5,977 pedestrians were killed. A majority of pedestrian accidents occur in urban areas and often at night. 

Since preliminary reports indicate that the hit-and-run driver was at fault, Tyler Rodriguez’s family may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. A “wrongful death” is one that occurs due to the fault of another person. With the assistance of an attorney, the family of a wrongful death victim can seek compensation for loss of companionship, funeral expenses, and more.
