Hit and Run Collisions
This hit and run crash on Loxwood Avenue, like most hit and run accidents, is difficult to understand. In a hit and run case, the driver responsible attempts to flee the scene to avoid any legal or moral responsibility for the events that they caused. A hit and run accident can be devastating to a victim, both financially and physically as the victim is left to pay for damages out of their own pocket and, in many cases, has suffered serious injuries requiring medical treatment.
A hit and run driver faces both civil and criminal liability for their actions. The law imposes an affirmative duty on the driver of a vehicle involved in a crash to stop at the crash site and wait for police to arrive on scene and investigate the accident.
