As experienced Arizona traffic accident attorneys, we were troubled by news of a severe Miami hit and run collision reported by Kiko News on Sunday, June 24, 2012. The collision took place at the intersection of Latham Boulevard and Live Oak Boulevard just after 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon when one car crashed into another. One of the vehicles involved in the crash left the scene. Police reported that at least one individual was injured in the collision but reports did not specify the exact number of injuries suffered or how bad those injuries were. Investigators have not yet located the driver that left the scene of the accident. We are thinking of those hurt in the crash and hope that they receive resolution soon.
