We all know that a victim of a vehicle collision can suffer great bodily harm as a result of the crash. Additional problems may arise if there is a hit-and-run accident, as the responsible party may be hard to find after fleeing the scene. Once this kind of crash occurs, police will be on the lookout for vehicles matching the description of the missing vehicle. Readers in Phoenix may be interested in a recent incident that illustrates this.
According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, a woman who was trying to repair her vehicle while in the carpool lane on Interstate 17 suffered serious injuries when her car was hit by a full-sized truck. The man and woman in the truck allegedly tried to flee the scene but were later apprehended. The first collision also led to a crash with a third vehicle.
