Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident Leaves Woman Injured
Tulsa, OK (December 16, 2018) In the early morning of December 16th, a hit-and-run pedestrian accident happened on East Admiral Place between South Sheridan Road and South Memorial Drive. According to the reports, a police officer was driving when he saw a woman on the ground on the north side of the road. As he tested the woman’s consciousness, he found that she was unresponsive and bled from her ears. The police saw a piece of headlight glass and side reflectors, which led him to believe the accident was a hit-and-run. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and transported the woman to a local hospital due to her critical injuries. Medical professionals diagnosed her with a brain shift to the left and revealed she was still unresponsive. The police are currently searching for the driver responsible.
We are sad to hear that a woman is in critical condition due to a hit-and-run accident. We hope she eventually recovers from her injuries.

Almost 700,000 hit-and-run pedestrian accidents happen every year in the United States. Drivers who leave injured victims to suffer are usually criminals on the run or people afraid of facing the consequences of their accidents. Once the police find the driver responsible for this accident, the injured victim could file a personal injury lawsuit to help cover current and future medical expenses. Because the victim is currently unresponsive, medical treatment could cost thousands of dollars.
