Husband Asked Officer for Ride Home Killed By Hit and Run Driver in Auto Accidents Posted 23 hours ago · Report reply 1 hour ago, Inheritors Debt said: do I have anything to file a civil suit against the police department of this small town? Not that I could tell (although your post is quite convoluted). You wrote that your husband was walking (apparently in the middle of the road) and was hit by a car driven by a high school student. Why would you think the police should be responsible for that? Aside from the merits, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years, so it's too late now.
