Almost one million hit-and-run accidents occur every year in the United States. Unfortunately, most of the time drivers are afraid of the consequences that come with being liable for an accident, which is why they flee the scene. The driver in this accident clearly partook in negligent behavior, especially since he was speeding and ran a red light. It’s likely that drugs or alcohol contributed to the cause of the crash. Once the police capture the driver responsible, the two injured victims could file personal injury lawsuits with the help of an attorney.
