A car accident involving a pedestrian can leave the pedestrian with physical injuries, but if the driver leaves the scene of the accident, it can often cause emotional pain as well. This emotional pain can impact the victim’s daily life in a major way, and even hinder the individual’s ability to heal hir or her physical injuries. Unfortunately, one driver ran away from the scene of the pedestrian accident that she had allegedly caused in California.
he accident took place on the evening of September 28 at around 7:30 p.m. and involved one motor vehicle and two pedestrians. Initial investigations showed that the driver struck the two pedestrians at an intersection. She then stopped her vehicle, got out and fled the scene on foot.
Emergency personnel arrived at the scene of the accident and transported the two victims to the hospital. The current condition of the victims is unknown at this time, but no other injuries were reported. California police are currently searching for the driver of the vehicle, and the accident is still under investigation at this time.
Once the driver is found and the pedestrian accident has been fully investigated, the injured victims may have the right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries. Compensation could be used to pay for any bills that are received from the hospital as well as supplement the incomes of the victims if they are unable to work. This could allow the victims to focus on recovering from their injuries without the stress of unexpected bills.
