1 Injured in Moreno Valley Car Accident on Gilman Springs Road
MORENO VALLEY (December 20, 2018) – One was injured after an alleged hit-and-run crash near Gilman Springs Road and Bridge Street Thursday afternoon, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch.
The accident took place at approximately 3:30 p.m., just west of Bridge Street.
CHP first logged the incident when for an unknown reason two vehicles apparently collided head-on on westbound Gilman Springs Road.
Two more cars then became involved in the process. One vehicle, described in the report as an SUV, went off the roadway into the ditch as a result of the collision.

Fire department officials along with the paramedics responded to the site and found a female occupant trapped inside the SUV. The victim was then extricated from the wreckage and was treated for what appeared to be minor injuries.
The name and condition of the patient at this time remained unknown. Meanwhile, a driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled the scene.
Authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to locate the hit-and-run motorist.

Most traffic accidents which involve a motorist who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes injuries 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 individual.
In this case, the injured and held not liable for the wreck may be entitled to a personal injury claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
