Driver sideswipes vehicle, 4 occupants flee from police

Jun 5, 2020 | Personal Injury

Sometimes, people do dangerous things. Take, for example, a case out of Atlanta where the state troopers were chasing a Dodge Charger. The vehicle’s driver was driving recklessly, according to the authorities, and they did not stop when the police attempted to pull them over.

The driver headed onto Interstate 85 north, which is where the driver sideswiped another vehicle. The driver had to stop next to a guardrail, and all the people who were inside the vehicle fled.

The Sandy Springs police reported that two of the four people in the case were found, but the location of the two others was still unknown. The officers stated that the situation is still being investigated and gave no other information on the two people who were arrested. It’s not clear if they’ll face charges yet.

This case is interesting because a dangerous driver did collide with another vehicle. Two of the four people involved were caught, and there is a potential, in that kind of situation, for the victim to pursue a claim.

If you are involved in a hit-and-run crash, you should know that you can pursue a claim if the other driver is found. On top of being reckless, it’s immoral to leave the scene of a collision when someone else could be hurt. It’s unfair, and you do deserve answers and to hold the other party accountable for their actions.

You may have long-term injuries or disabilities as a result of what you’ve been through. With the right support, you can make your claim and make it clear that you expect to be fairly compensated for what you’ve been through.
