Man Suffers Broken Leg
SAN DIEGO (June 15, 2017)- According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, a hit-and-run crash left a driver badly injured Thursday morning near the intersection of C Street and 47th Street.
Two pickup trucks were involved in the wreck in which San Diego police officials were called to the scene.
A Chevy Tahoe and a Nissan collided and one of the vehicles careened into a house in the Chollas View neighborhood community district.
Preliminary investigations disclose that the Nissan driver had been traveling southbound on 47th when the driver of the Tahoe turned directly into its path from eastbound C Street.
The report indicated that the Nissan was the vehicle that struck the house and its driver was the victim who suffered what appeared to have been a broken leg.
Meanwhile, the Chevy driver exited their vehicle and fled the scene on foot leaving the Tahoe in the middle of the intersection.
No further details have been released while San Diego PD search for the suspect.
JAG Found James Johnson has handled several hit-and-run incidents where clients have incurred serious injuries or have lost ones as a result over the course of the past few years. It is imperative to proceed with caution and have complete awareness of your surroundings while being on the look out especially for bicyclists and pedestrians who are difficult to spot at times. James Johnson is very familiar with the Chollas View community in San Diego and is aware of some of the dangers the roads possess.
In this particular case, usually leaving the scene of an accident suggests that the motorist has guilt and may have been operating the vehicle while under the influence. Had the driver stayed at the scene and attempted to help the teen, the outcome may have been different. The victim who suffered the broken leg will be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit if he carries the Uninsured Motorists Coverage which covers injuries to you and your passengers if you are hit by an uninsured or hit-and-run driver. A lawsuit may also be pursued against the hit-and-run driver (once located) or owner of the vehicle if the vehicle has insurance coverage.
HELP FOR HIT-AND-RUN VICTIMS
At Johnson Attorneys Group, it is just as much of a priority for us to help the police and other law enforcement officials locate the hit-and-run drivers as it is to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and expenses. Anytime a motorist hits another vehicle or pedestrian and then flees the scene without contacting that person, it is considered to be a hit-and-run accident. While a person at-fault is obligated by law to stop immediately after collision, this is not always the case. Leaving the scene of an accident that involved injuries or even fatalities is a serious crime and is considered a felony.
