The driver sped off, “basically leaving a completely disoriented person on the side of a busy highway, knowingly endangering” the lawsuit, filed by Hunter’s parents, he says. Just before 3 a.m., he was struck and killed by a Toyota Corolla as he was walking in the fast lane of the highway, the California Highway Patrol told The Los Angeles Daily News.

The driver who struck him remained on the scene and was not investigated for any wrongdoing, the CHP said. Uber has declined to comment on the lawsuit, however the driver’s attorney, Theida Salazar, told the newspaper that the driver returned to the area to search for Hunter but was unable to find him.

His client was “shocked” after learning Hunter had died, but his attorney said he had done everything he could at the time. “It is a tragic incident, it is a loss of life,” Salazar said. “My client is a father, he is a brother, he is a son. He is passionate about his community and is very compassionate towards other people. It’s not something to be taken lightly.”


The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages of more than $25,000. Hunter’s former high school football coach remembered him in an Instagram post after Hunter’s death as a “talented player” who was “smart, tough and always tried his best” as a free safety. He was also the king of his high school homecoming party.

He was my safe space.”Read More……
