As experienced Tucson traffic collision attorneys, we were upset by reports of another hit-and-run crash in the city that happened on June 13 from the Tucson Police Department. Reports indicate that the crash happened just after 10:30 a.m. near the corner of 1850 East and Prince Road when two cars collided and one sped away from the scene of the accident. At least one person in the car that remained at the scene was injured, but police have not reported the extent of the injuries that individual sustained.
Police have not confirmed the cause of the wreck and have not yet reported whether the vehicle that fled the scene has been found. Our thoughts are with the person who was hurt in this hit-and-run car crash and we wish them a quick recovery.
