Police search for driver in hit and run accident

Police are reaching out to the public looking for suspect in connection with a hit and run accident that left a victim with serious injuries including the amputation of one leg and the possibility of amputation to the other. The accident occurred in late February, when the suspect was travelling on Northeast 54th Avenue, crashed into the victim and fled the scene.

The victim was left in a coma for two weeks. After awaking from the coma, the victim said that the man responsible for the hit and run called the hospital and spoke to him. The victim went on to say that the driver apologized and said that once he got himself in order he would turn himself in. That is yet to happen however, and police are asking anyone who knows the driver's whereabouts to call 911.

Following this tragedy, the victim will need expensive medical equipment such as an electric scooter or wheelchair to move. In an effort to help offset these costs, which the victim's mother said will be a financial burden, she has set up a GoFundMe account.

Victims of any type of car accident are often left with serious or catastrophic injuries which can lead to long term or even life-long consequences. They also may lead to significant medical expenses and rehabilitation costs, as well as time lost at work. If you or someone you love was the victim or a hit and run accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. You may wish to speak with a law professional familiar with personal injuries to see whether you qualify.
