Police are searching for the suspect who fled the scene. At this time, we do not know what circumstances led to this person being struck down by the vehicle. Police are piecing together evidence and will hopefully identify the suspect.
Our prayers go out to the person injured in hopes of a full recovery.
There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances.
An injured person should seek out immediate and ongoing medical care until they are completely better. If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance company.
