Candance Higginbothan Offers Update on Son's Condition After Hit & Run
charges are pending against Jessica McClellan after she struck a teenage boy with her pick-up
truck last Sunday night, and then fled the scene of the accident.
According to police reports, the boy, 15-year-old son of Candance Higginbothan, was walking with some friends near the Stephen Decatur Elementary School around 9 p.m. on Sunday evening. McClellan was driving her white Ford pick-up near the 3400 block of Foltz Street when she swerved and struck the teenager, leaving him in critical condition.
Emergency crews were called to the scene, and an interview with Candance Higginbothan later told news sources that the police had made an arrest on the case, and that her son was currently on a ventilator in Riley Hospital for Children.
The charges pending against McClellan are failure to stop at an accident causing injury, and driving while license suspended.
Hit & Run Means Somebody is Left to Pay
If you were injured in a hit & run accident, it’s nearly impossible to get compensation you need to cover medical bills and cost of living, especially when there isn’t a responsible insurance company to cover your costs. The costs end up being filed against your own insurance, causing your premiums to rise, and leaving you with more deficit.
