Unfortunately, only one of the drivers remained on scene to speak with police and assist in their investigation as the other driver quickly fled the scene of the collision prior to officers’ arrival. Salem police have not said how the accident occurred, or which driver was at fault for the crash. One person was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash. No word at this time on the identity of the drivers at this time. The accident is pending further investigation and charges are expected to be filed once the hit and run driver can be apprehended.

A hit and run collision is both a frustrating and scary event. This crash in Salem reminds us all that hit and runs take place across our state on a daily basis in many areas. Although no one wants to think about being involved in these types of crashes, the reality is that they do happen and you must be prepared in the event that it happens to you.
There are many situations in which hit and runs occur. While these are certainly not legal excuses for a hit and run, the following circumstances are typically seen in hit and run cases. The fleeing driver may be impaired, may not have insurance or may be the subject of some other legal trouble in which they do not wish to have contact with police. In these cases, they feel justified in leaving the scene and attempting to place responsibility for their actions on others.
