In disturbing news out of Boston, a motorist is accused of a hit and run crash causing personal injury. The incident allegedly took place around 7:00 pm on Monday evening at Franklin Park Road within the Boston City limits. Police initially responded to a call regarding an accident at that location and dispatchers sent Officer Joseph Simonson of the BPD out to investigate.
When Officer Simonson arrived he discovered one person suffering from injuries received in the accident. The injured victim was tended to by medical personnel while Officer Simonson investigated the crash. After speaking with witnesses on scene, Officer Simonson determined that this was a multi vehicle crash and that one driver fled the scene before police arrival. The BPD is classifying this incident as a hit and run with personal injuries. The driver has not been apprehended at this time and there is no word on the condition of the injured victim. Police could file criminal charges against the hit and run driver.
Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run accidents are very serious and can be catastrophic. A driver leaving the scene shows disregard for the innocent victims that they have injured. In this case, it appears as though police have not yet located the responsible driver but are continuing to thoroughly investigate the situation.
If you have been involved in a hit and run case, you could be entitled to compensation. A hit and run accident poses special problems that require the experience of a good personal injury attorney. Even if you never locate the other driver, there may be insurance coverage available to compensate you for your injuries and your pain and suffering stemming from the accident. However, you should never try to handle these cases alone. You are already frustrated enough that you have been victimized once. Do not compound your mistake by mishandling your personal injury case in the aftermath of the crash.
