Both victims were immediately taken to a nearby hospital with unspecified moderate injuries. As of Tuesday morning, both Carlos and Joy were released from the hospital and are on their road to recovery.
Meanwhile, the driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. The description of the suspect vehicle and the identity of the alleged hit-and-run motorist were not available.
In this case, the driver will likely be held responsible for causing the accident. It is expected for any motorist to stop and remain at the scene after being involved in a crash. Regardless of their reasons, fleeing the area is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision led to the injury of another individual. We are hopeful that the authorities will soon be able to locate the suspect and justice will be served.
Both Carlos and Joy Rouse will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party, seeking the maximum compensation for all the hospital bills, existing and future medical needs lost wages and other damages. Our staff believes that the victims and families of hit-and-run cases need a professional and an expert attorney who will fight aggressively for their legal rights in court.
