When someone hits you, you want them to be held accountable. They may have been distracted or behaving recklessly when they caused your crash, but the results are the same: You have injuries, and you want support while you recover.
Sometimes, people try to evade responsibility. If they are already violating the law, then they might try to flee the scene of an accident before they’re caught. That may be what happened in this case when a man fled after seriously harming three people.
A man who was wanted for a collision that took place in Harborcreek has been taken into custody, according to a report from the Pennsylvania State Police. The two-vehicle crash resulted in serious injuries to three people, a woman and two children.
The crash happened when the driver failed to avoid a collision with a 2019 Chevy Equinox that was making a left-hand turn. The 41-year-old man is accused of fleeing from the scene of the crash in his Jeep Renegade.
The woman inside the Chevrolet and two passengers, 7 and 12, had to be taken to UPMC Hamot for treatment. They had serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
The driver of the jeep faces several charges including felonies and summary offenses such as driving under suspension, speeding and reckless driving.
If you are hit by a person who is being reckless or who has no business being behind the wheel of a vehicle, you can get help. Your attorney will fight for you and help you get the compensation that you need to support yourself as you recover.
