Woman Flees Crash Site After Hitting Three Cars

By Alpert Schreyer on October 14, 2014

A woman fled the scene of multiple accidents after hitting three vehicles. According to a WBAL-TV news report, the hit-and-run accidents occurred in the 3800 block of Buckeystown Pike in Buckeystown. Officials say the red car left the roadway, struck a car, stopped briefly, hit two more vehicles and fled the scene. It is unclear if anyone was hurt in the accidents. Detectives are looking for a red car with damage to the left front and right side.

Under Maryland Statute 20-102: “The driver of each vehicle involved in an accident that results in bodily injury to or death of another person immediately shall stop the vehicle as close as possible to the scene of the accident, without obstructing traffic more than necessary.” Despite this law, it is relatively common for drivers to speed away from an accident out of fear of being arrested or being held accountable.

If you have been involved in a Maryland hit-and-run accident, it is advisable to:

  • Call the authorities right away
  • Write down everything you remember about the vehicle, license plate and driver
  • Collect contact information from everyone who witnessed the accident
  • Take photos of the crash site and any debris that remained at the scene
  • Ask local businesses if they have surveillance cameras that may have caught the vehicle on tape
  • Stay abreast of the ongoing investigation
  • Contact an experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer who has successfully handled hit-and-run cases.

It is possible to hold a hit-and-run driver accountable for losses such as medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, time away from work and other related damages. If the driver is not found, the uninsured motorist clause of the victim’s own auto insurance policy could also help provide the needed compensation. A skilled Maryland hit and run accident attorney can review your case and help you understand what options are available and ensure that your legal rights and best interests are protected.
