Hit-and-Run Accident in San Francisco Area Causes Injuries

By Brian Chase on October 2, 2010 - No comments

A hit-and-run car accident in the San Francisco Bay Area caused injuries to a pedestrian the morning of September 23, 2010. ABC News reports that the hit-and-run accident occurred at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and 164th Avenue in Castro Valley. Police are still looking for the car that struck and injured the pedestrian. No vehicle or suspect descriptions are available at this point. An investigation is ongoing. The extent of the victim’s injuries is not yet known.

I truly hope the pedestrian did not sustain catastrophic injuries in this collision. I wish this injured victim the very best for a swift and full recovery. Please keep this injured victim in your thoughts and prayers.

Hit-and-Run Statistics

According to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic accident statistics, there were 17,158 hit-and-run car accidents that resulted in fatalities or injuries in California in 2008. A majority of these car accidents involved injuries. There were a total of 247 deaths in 2008 involving hit-and-runs statewide.

Holding Hit-and-Run Drivers Accountable

I hope the driver who caused this injury crash is promptly located, apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. California law requires motorists to stop and remain at the scene of an injury accident, irrespective of whose fault the accident may be. It is not only illegal to hit someone with your vehicle and flee the scene, it is also a heartless and inhumane act.

If you saw this hit-and-run accident or have information about the driver, please visit our web site, www.hitandrunreward.com, to find out how to leave an anonymous tip and become eligible for a $1,000 reward. In this case, the driver may have also committed other traffic violations such as failing to yield right-of-way to the pedestrian. If I were the victim’s family member, I would certainly want to know if negligence on someone else’s part was responsible for the injuries and the accident.

If you are an injured victim, it would be in your best interest to seek the counsel of a reputed San Francisco personal injury lawyer, who will advise you about your legal rights and options.
