As Bullhead City personal injury attorneys, we were saddened to hear that a suspect involved in a car crash fled the scene before police arrived. A white pick-up truck with no lights smashed into the back of another car at the intersection of McCormick Blvd. and Indian Head Drive early Sunday morning according to The Mohave Daily News. The driver of the truck exited his vehicle, tried to convince the other driver not to call police, and then fled the scene according to witnesses. When police arrived, the suspect was gone. Luckily, no one was injured.
Cause of This Bullhead City Car Accident
Driving under the influence caused this Bullhead auto accident. Victims of drunk drivers often experience, at the very least, damages to their vehicles and minor injuries. Others are seriously injured or killed. It takes an experienced car accident lawyer to investigate the case, uncover the facts and represent the victim to recover damages and medical bills.
Arizona Hit-and-Run Statistics
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) reports that more than 16,000 Arizona drivers were guilty of hit-and-run accidents in 2005. While the victims in this car collision luckily escaped injury, there are many victims that don’t. As car accident lawyers, we often see people who were injured and don’t receive immediate assistance because the other driver flees the scene and doesn’t call for help. Also, like many hit-and-run incidents, this crash involved driving under the influence, which police later discovered when a woman called them to report that the suspect was walking down the middle of McCormick Blvd. She called for help after she allowed him to get into her car where he then repeatedly vomited.
