Modesto Hit-and-Run Accident at Carver Road and Standiford Avenue, August 6MODESTO (August 8, 2018) – A Modesto police officer was injured in a hit-and-run collision at the intersection of Carver Road and Standiford Avenue Monday morning, according to the Modesto Bee.

Preliminary investigation revealed an officer was driving around 12:50 a.m. east on Standiford and crossed the intersection at a green light. At the same time, a white Hyundai was traveling south at Carver. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver tried to turn left onto Standiford while the light on Carver was red, and ended up broadsiding the patrol car.

The impact reportedly forced the police vehicle to slam into a nearby sign and a bus bench, resulting in significant damage to the patrol car. As per the article, the unidentified officer sustained what appeared to be minor injuries as a result of the wreck.

A driver who flees the area without rendering assistance or leaving a contact information can be subjected to felony hit-and-run charges. Based on this news report, it is apparent that the motorist involved who fled on foot after broadsiding a police vehicle will be held responsible for the traffic collision.

Depending on the results of the investigation, the victim in this specific incident may file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault. We hope the alleged hit-and-run driver will be located soon.
