Police Arrest Driver Responsible for Shawnee Hit-and-Run Accident

By Car Accident Help on November 19, 2012

On September 26, a young girl suffered serious injuries in a Shawnee, Oklahoma car accident involving a hit-and-run vehicle. According to a recent KOCO news report, a juvenile has been charged in connection with that hit-and-run crash. The young victim of the accident sustained multiple facial fractures, skull fractures, swelling on the brain, double vision, and a broken tibia and fibula. It is not clear at this time if the juvenile responsible for the Shawnee hit-and-run accident will be charged as an adult for leaving the scene of the crash.

It is a felony to leave the scene of an accident when someone has been injured. According to Oklahoma Statute 47-10-102, “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in a nonfatal injury to any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of such accident or as close thereto as possible but shall then forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of the accident.”

Victims of careless drivers can pursue financial compensation for their losses. This process becomes more complicated, however, when the at-fault driver leaves the scene of the crash. An experienced Oklahoma hit-and-run victim attorney can help a victim of an accident pursue compensation for the crash whether or not the at-fault driver is identified by the authorities. There are legal options available for victims of hit-and-run accidents, but the injured victim will have to act quickly to protect his or her rights.
