As experienced Yuma pedestrian accident attorneys, we were deeply disturbed and truly saddened by a collision that took place on July 3, as reported by ABC 15 News.

As experienced Phoenix car accident attorneys, we were taken aback by the results of a serious crash that happened on Wednesday, July 4, 2012, according to news reports from KPHO. The crash happened Wednesday morning on Van Buren Road near 20th Avenue when a young boy was struck by a car. The other child was not injured. The driver of the vehicle that hit the boy reportedly attempted to swerve around the children but was unable to avoid hitting the one child. The young boy was taken to the emergency room in critical condition; however, he is now stable and his injuries are not life-threatening. We hope that this young boy recovers from his injuries and that his family is coping well.

The fact that the driver hit the boy and fled the scene does not bode well for the driver. People should remember that hitting someone by accident is an accident possibly, but leaving the scene is an intentional action that can be criminal as well as civil.

As Arizona hit and run car accident attorneys with years of experience handling hit and run cases, we were shocked to hear reports by the Prescott Daily Courier of a collision on April 27 in Prescott Valley. The incident occurred when a car travelling on Pronghorn Ranch Parkway struck a pedestrian who was trying to cross the road at the intersection with Viewpoint Drive. According to eyewitness testimony and the victim, the car stopped temporarily after the collision but the driver did not get out of the car or check on the condition of the teenage boy who had been hit. The car then sped away. Emergency crews transferred the boy to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Our hearts go out to the boy who was injured and to his family, and we hope that police are able to locate the driver responsible.

How a Prescott Valley Pedestrian Accident Happens

The best way for drivers to avoid being involved in an Arizona pedestrian car crash is to keep their attentions focused on the road. Most pedestrian crashes occur at stoplights and stop signs when drivers make a left or right turn without looking down the full length of the crosswalk for pedestrians. According to reports by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), approximately 1,100 pedestrians are hurt in car crashes every year. This means that nearly 85 percent of collisions involving pedestrians result in injuries to at least one person.

As Arizona hit-and-run accident lawyers, we have seen a great number of collisions caused by drivers under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and we were sad to hear the news that a recent crash has been linked to illegal substances, according to The Arizona Daily Sun. A teenager was linked to a crash in August 2011 when he was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and speeding, hit another car, and immediately fled the scene. His victim was taken to the hospital for his injuries and later died.

Recent reports have indicated that driver was drunk on Jagermeister and high on cocaine at the time of the incident. We want to take a moment to use this crash to remind other drivers of the seriousness of breaking the law, including driving drunk, speeding, and especially fleeing the scene of an accident. This can result in worse injuries or death for the victim because of the possible delay in emergency responders to the scene.

The law team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. was extremely disappointed to hear that yet another driver has fled the scene of a pedestrian accident in Phoenix. The woman who was hit was crossing the road near 19th Avenue and Camelback Road on December 22. The driver left her lying across the light-rail tracks after hitting her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her, and we wish her a fast recovery.

People who leave the scene of car accidents should question their actions and turn themselves in to the police. For families of injured victims, and even more so for families of loved ones who are killed in hit and run car accidents, knowing the facts surrounding an accident is important. When drivers leave the scene, it makes it that much harder for families and loved ones of innocent victims. No one should ever be the victim of a hit and run car accident.
