Vehicle accidents can occur even we are not expecting them, and some of these accidents can have devastating consequences. Negligent driving can leave people with injuries and even cause fatalities. Drivers who cause accidents and then leave the scene are acting criminally, and they could be leaving victims behind to suffer from their injuries.
On May 26, the Worcester Police Department received information about a hit-and-run driver that caused an accident on the 900 Block of Main Street. Initial reports found that the accident involved two vehicles, one of which left the scene shortly after the incident occurred. The incident was reported to first responders around 6 in the evening. Fire and police departments arrived on the scene of the accident shortly after.
Medical care was administered at the scene upon arrival, and no individuals had to be taken to the hospital. It appears there were no serious injuries, but the extent of the injuries is still being determined.
Injuries and Car Accidents
While it appears the injuries in this accident were luckily minor, this is not always the case in car accidents. The hit-and-run driver who fled the scene could have been leaving the victim behind to suffer injuries and not receive medical care. All drivers need to remember they have a responsibility to the other drivers around them.
