CHP Officer Ron Simmons reported that the car accident occurred around 2:00 p.m. A Dodge Challenger was seen driving on the I-680 at a high rate of speed prior to the crash but the driver of the vehicle walked away from the scene.
Officer Simmons stated that a husband and wife were transported to hospitals with minor injuries.
“A motorist injured at the hands of a hit-and-run driver is subject to a bodily injury claim against the negligent parties insurance, assuming they have insurance once the driver is caught. If the negligent party does not carry auto insurance, injured parties will still have a claim if the motorist carries uninsured motorist coverage on their vehicle also known as UM,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm.
