Pedestrian Injured in Oklahoma City Hit-and-Run Crash

By Car Accident Help on October 17, 2012

A pedestrian was injured in an Oklahoma City car accident involving a suspected drunk driver who left the scene of the crash. According to a News9 report, the pedestrian accident occurred near N.W. 20th Street and Council Road in Oklahoma City. Officials say a 29-year-old woman was under the influence of alcohol when she struck the pedestrian and drove away. The victim has been listed in critical condition. The driver was tracked down by the authorities and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) with great bodily injury and leaving the scene of an injury accident.

Under Oklahoma Law, drivers are required to give information and offer assistance following an injury accident. According to Oklahoma Statute 47-10-104: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or death of any person or damage to any vehicle which is driven or attended by any person shall … exchange information and render aid to the victim.”

In such cases, in addition to facing criminal charges, the negligent driver can also be held civilly liable for the victim’s injuries. Compensation may be available to victims for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages. If the hit-and-run driver is not found, victims can seek compensation through the uninsured motorist clause of their own auto insurance policies.

The experienced Oklahoma City pedestrian injury attorneys at the Maples Law Firm have a long history of helping victims of drunk driving and hit-and-run accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a collision, please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a free case evaluation.
