Hit And Run Injures Pedestrian In South Philadelphia

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. Posted in Pedestrian Accident on Friday, June 3, 2016.

A man was hit by a car in South Philly, and the driver not only didn’t stop, but fled the scene. The crash happened at about 3:40 in the morning, and it was near the intersection of Front and Oregon. The man who was hit was apparently attempting to cross the street.

A pair of witnesses watched the event happen, though, and they gave chase. They eventually caught up with the driver and got him to stop. Then they took pictures of his damaged car and his license plate.

In a rather odd turn of events, the witnesses then talked to the driver and said he should go back to the crash site, and the driver decided to do it. He drove back and talked to the 31-year-old who he’d hit, and he even went so far as to offer the victim a ride back to his house.

However, an ambulance then got to the scene as well, and the driver fled from the authorities once again. Thanks to the photos from the witnesses, though, it was not hard for the police to track down the 61-year-old man, who was driving a burgundy Hyundai Santa Fe that was built in 2004.

Reports do indicate that the victim’s condition is stable, though he was taken to the hospital for treatment.

A hit and run can often be very complicated, as the police have to find out who did it before you can seek compensation for your injuries. As this case shows, though, that’s not always as hard as it sounds. When the driver is located, it’s crucial to know what types of compensation you may be entitled to.
