Car overturns after T-bone crash with hit-and-run driver on Voltaire Street
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (August 9, 2018) – A passenger in a rideshare vehicle was injured when the car they were riding in was T-boned by a hit-and-run driver and overturned on Voltaire Street, according to San Diego 10 News.
The crash was reported about 1:45 a.m. this morning at Sunset Cliffs Boulevard. The victim’s vehicle landed on its roof near a Shell gas station. Meanwhile, the suspect in a Volvo station wagon fled the scene without stopping to help the Lyft driver and their two passengers.
One of the two passengers suffered unknown injuries and was transported to a hospital by ambulance. The second passenger and the Lyft driver were unharmed.
Fortunately, the suspect may have left behind a license plate at the scene of the crash. Police continue to investigate this hit-and-run crash and a report will be made available to all those involved.
Hit-and-run Accident Investigation
At this time, we do not know all the facts about this case. It’s unknown what led to this collision, but the suspect who fled may likely be responsible.
We hope the person who was hurt gets the best care available for a full recovery.
Passengers who ride in a vehicle operated by Lyft or Uber, are protected by the company’s insurance policy whether or not the suspected hit-and-run driver is located. Certainly a person can make a claim directly to the insurance company without an attorney, but they most-often do not get fully compensated for all their losses.
While this is always a personal decision, for many the financial losses associated with a traffic accident are significant.
