Montgomery County Man in Custody after Hit & Run

By Alpert Schreyer on July 12, 2011

A 40-year-old man is likely to be charged in a hit & run crash on I-495, according to the Gazette.net. While driving on the inner loop of the highway in Potomac, the man crashed into another vehicle which was sitting disabled in the roadway because of a mechanical problem. The driver of the broken down car was inside the vehicle when it was struck. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries although police did not have any information about his condition. After the 40-year-old man struck the inoperable vehicle, he fled the scene. A witness contacted police and followed the man onto I-270 and then into Rockville. Because of the Good Samaritan, city, county, and state police were on hand to take the man into custody.

Maryland law states that the drivers of each vehicle involved in a crash that results in bodily injury or death are required stay at the scene of the collision. A person who commits a hit and run where the other party has sustained serious bodily injury may face jail time and significant fines. If the other party involved in the crash dies and a driver flees the scene, that driver may be charged with a felony and is subject to years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

If the driver responsible for the crash was acting negligently at the time of the incident, he or she may also be liable to compensate the injured party. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a Maryland car accident, the Rockville Maryland car accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer will fight to get you compensation you may be entitled to.
