On Friday, August 25, 2017, an elderly woman was killed in a hit-and-run accident, in Visalia. The Tulare County auto collision happened at the Vallarta Grocery Store, at about 1:20 PM.
Angelina Ayala, 87, was walking across the parking lot at the Vallarta Supermarket when she was hit by a dark-colored sedan. The car had been driving southbound when it struck the victim, then it drove off.
Ayala suffered severe injuries and was taken by ambulance to Kaweah Delta Medical. She died a short time later in the hospital.
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. Please give me a call, Attorney John Rozier, at 559-713-0159. Located in town, on Caldwell Avenue. Or reach us on our website.
