Summer has officially begun, and Connecticut residents are out and about. With beautiful weather and so much to do, drivers need to remain vigilant and watch for people on foot. Sadly, each year, hundreds of people are injured or killed when they are struck by vehicles, and a recent hit-and-run pedestrian accident has police searching for clues.
So far, investigators have revealed that a woman was walking through a small town in Connecticut. She was struck by a car and injured. The driver sped off and did not even attempt to render aid to the wounded victim.
Police arrived at the scene a short time later. Fortunately, the woman survived and received treatment for her injuries. It is not yet clear how severely she was hurt or if she will ever fully recover from the ordeal. Police were able to locate the driver and the car that struck the woman a short time later. They are now asking witnesses that may be able to provide details about the accident to come forward.
A hit-and-run pedestrian accident can leave a victim suffering both physically and mentally for a long time after a crash. Medical bills and other expenses can be stressful when a victim is trying to recover. If a Connecticut victim wants to take legal action against the driver that caused him or her to suffer, a victim may want to contact an experienced attorney. An attorney can assist a victim throughout the legal process and help collect any damages or compensation a victim may be owed for his or her suffering.
