Hit and run accidents are some of the worst types of accidents that we encounter as personal injury attorneys. Unfortunately, there is news coming out of Worcester, Massachusetts that a hit and run took place around 2:00 am on July 18th. That is when Worcester Police responded to an injury accident call in the 200 block of Providence Street. When officers arrived on scene, they discovered that an accident involving two vehicles. One of the vehicles, however, had left the scene prior to police arrival. The remaining participants in the crash remained on scene. Officers noted that injuries were sustained in the crash and medical treatment was given.
The Worcester Police Department has released few other details about the hit and run at this time as their investigation into the accident continues. In the meantime, our thoughts are with the injured and we certainly hope that police are able to locate the responsible driver as soon as possible so that all involved are required to answer for their actions.
Accidents Involving Hit and Run
Car accidents are a negative event even under the best of circumstances. A hit and run accident poses many special problems that a typical accident does not. Sometimes the other driver is never located and therefore they are not forced to be responsible for the damage that they have caused.
So what do you do in case of a hit and run? First, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney.
