When driving on back roads or suburban neighborhoods, it can be easy to think that you are safe from accidents. This is not the case as car accidents can happen anywhere. Driving negligently can have dire consequences, and drivers who cause an accident and then flee the scene are acting criminally. Hit-and-run drivers could be leaving victims behind who are in need of medical attention.
The Worcester Police Department received a report about a hit-and-run accident on May 25. The accident involved minor injuries and occurred on the 1st block of Belmont Street. First responders arrived at the scene around 2 in the afternoon and found the accident involved two vehicles. One of the vehicle drivers fled the scene shortly after the accident occurred.
The victim spoke to police about the incident, and search is still being conducted for the other driver and vehicle involved. The extent of the injuries was not known, but no fatalities were reported
Injuries and Car Accidents
Car accidents can cause severe injury to victims. It is essential for your safety as well as the safety of others that you always drive attentively and cautiously. Negligent driving can lead to accidents. Criminal actions like hit-and-runs can leave victims to suffer and not receive the medical assistance they need. In these cases, victims can seek to receive compensation and assistance for what happened to them.
