Car accidents can happen without warning, and the impacts of some of these accidents can be tragic and devastating. Reckless driving can leave people with serious injuries, and drivers who cause an accident and flee the scene are forgetting that they have a responsibility to the victims. They are also engaging in a criminal activity, and they could be leaving victims behind to suffer.
On May 24, the Worcester Police Department received a call about a hit-and-run driver. Initial reports determined that the accident involved two vehicles, one of which fled the scene shortly after the incident. The accident was reported to police at around 2 in the morning and occurred on the 100 block of Pilgrim Avenue. Emergency personnel arrived quickly to the scene of the accident.
Upon arrival, first responders administered care for minor injuries. No individuals had to be taken to the hospital, and it appears there were no life-threatening injuries. Police are still searching for the other vehicle involved in the accident.

Thankfully, it appears that the injuries reported in this accident were minor, but some car accidents can be much more severe. As such, we urge all drivers to remain aware of the potential deadly impacts of negligent driving. All drivers must remember they have a duty of care to the other people around them, and they must follow the rules of the road at all times.
