On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, a hit-and-run car crash took place in Orosi. The Tulare County pedestrian accident ended in fatality, on Highway 63, at around 6:15 AM.
Camilo Tovar, 83, and his wife were crossing Highway 63 at the intersection of Miller Avenue.
As the two pedestrians were walking, a dark sedan driving north on SR 63, hit Tovar. The automobile then drove off without stopping.
The victim suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
Even though the driver may never be identified, the family of the deceased may have a valid uninsured motorist claim under their own insurance policy.
