Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that the motorist involved did not stop to render aid and continued driving south on Center Street. The suspect vehicle was described by the officials as a Honda Accord.
Authorities are gathering more information and evidence to locate the alleged hit-and-run driver.
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 most likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect.
Drivers who are involved in traffic incidents are obligated to stop and provide assistance to injured individuals and to cooperate with the authorities. In this case, the motorist involved took off, abandoning the wounded bicyclist in the roadway. We at Johnson Attorneys Group believe that the victim has a right to pursue a lawsuit regardless of the alleged at-fault party’s reasons.
