There is never anything good about a hit and run crash where the end result was a death, an early morning crash in Davie lead to the death of an unidentified woman. See story below.
Sun Sentinel – Davie, FL -- A woman was killed in an early morning hit and run crash in Davie Thursday, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Authorities are looking for a small, dark-colored SUV with heavy front-end damage that was involved in the crash and fled, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Wysocky said.
The accident happened in the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 just west of Nob Hill Road shortly after 4 a.m.
The unidentified woman was ejected from her car and pronounced dead on scene, Wysocky said.
Three cars, including the SUV that left the scene, were involved, but FHP is still piecing together the sequence of events, he said.
Because of the crash and investigation, a westbound portion of I-595 was closed to motorists for about three hours Thursday morning.

In any wrongful death case the court may rule that the defendant be required to pay medical bills; funeral costs and the estimated future earnings of the deceased. In some cases I have seen the court also rule that they may also be liable for loss of services for things like household chores that would normally be performed by the deceased as well as loss of advice and companionship.
