Children suffer personal injury in New York accident

Most people realize and accept that accidents happen. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding a motor vehicle collision, however, all parties involved are required to remain at the scene. However, police in New York claim that one of the drivers involved in a recent crash that caused two children to suffer personal injury fled the scene.

Police report that they receive a called about an accident one afternoon on a day in mid-October. At the scene, they discovered a vehicle that had turned over. Two children in the vehicle were transported to the hospital where they are said to be in stable condition.

A white commercial vehicle is believed to have been involved in the accident, but the driver allegedly left the scene; the truck reportedly sustained significant damage to its front. Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to contact them. Specifically, they believe the truck may have turned onto a road where many houses may have surveillance cameras, and they are asking homeowners for any relevant footage.

With the advances in technology, it is possible -- perhaps even likely -- that New York police will ultimately be able to track down the other driver involved in the accident. If the crash that resulted in two children suffering injuries was the result of the other driver's negligence, the family may decide to file a personal injury lawsuit. A successfully presented case could result in a financial award that will help the family cope with the medical costs and other expenses stemming from the crash.
