Child Injured in Oklahoma Hit-and-Run Accident
A 4-year-old girl was injured in an Oklahoma car accident involving a driver who fled the scene of the crash on foot. According to a news report in The Tahlequah Daily Press, the hit-and-run accident occurred at Muskogee Avenue and Meadow Creek Drive in Tahlequah. Officials say the driver of a 1999 Chevrolet K15 ran a red light and struck a 2002 Honda. The 4-year-old passenger in the Honda suffered severe injuries to her head and body. Officials have not been able to locate the hit-and-run driver.
Leaving the scene of a car accident is illegal under Oklahoma law. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-10-103-A: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting only in damage to a vehicle which is driven or attended by any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of such accident or as close thereto as possible but shall forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of such accident.”
Anyone who has been injured in an Oklahoma hit-and-run accident would be well advised to discuss his or her legal options with a skilled personal injury lawyer. A car accident attorney with experience handling hit-and-run accidents will know how to pursue financial compensation whether or not the at-fault driver is found by the authorities.
