People who are injured in a hit-and-run accident may never know who was to blame. Even when the investigation is ongoing, there is no guarantee that a suspect will ever be found. For a Pennsylvania woman who was hit by a driver who fled the scene, it was nearly five months before police arrested the man responsible for the crash.
Accidents can happen in a split second and leave behind broken bones and broken families. Though there is no way to predict when an accident will happen, there are many ways to prevent sustaining serious injuries as a result of an accident.
While on the road, drivers are constantly trying to avoid accidents by watching out for other drivers. But sometimes it's not the other drivers that we need to be concerned about. A car accident can occur when anything unexpected disrupts our driving routine.
It is a proud moment for many when they hear the words "you passed" from their driving instructor. The thought of car accidents is far from their minds when they proudly receive their license. But for one man in western Pennsylvania, that proud moment was cut short when he drove the car into a building.
