At approximately 7:00 am officers were dispatched to the 1 block of View Street on the south side of the city in reference to a hit and run between two vehicles. Police rushed to the site of the collision. Although they were unable to immediately locate the hit and run driver, they did make contact with the other driver who stated they had been hit by another car prior to the driver fleeing the scene. The driver sustained minor injuries as a result of the collision and was treated by paramedics on scene.
Police have not released a description of the hit and run vehicle that they are searching for, but it is believed that the vehicle will have front end damage from the collision. This accident is currently under investigation. Criminal charges are expected when the driver is apprehended.

So what do you do in case of a hit and run? First, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney. If the other driver cannot be located, your attorney may still be able to help you recover for your injuries and out of pocket expenses.
