Merced Hit-and-Run Accident
Anguiano was transported to Mercy Medical Center in Merced with injuries described as minor.
CHP reported that Anguiano was able to crawl up onto the front lawn of a nearby home as the driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. The victim was found by a woman almost eight hours after the incident occurred.
Meanwhile, the driver involved was last seen speeding away heading east. Authorities are gathering more information and evidence to locate the hit-and-run suspect.
Most traffic accidents which involve a motorist who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes an injury to another person. Such circumstances are likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
In this case, Mr. Arthur Anguiano may be entitled to a claim seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, and lost wages.
