Baltimore Hit-and-Run Driver Injures Two in Separate Crashes
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Aug 21, 2014 in Car Accidents
An unidentified hit-and-run suspect injured a police officer and a pedestrian in two separate crashes in Baltimore Wednesday evening.
At approximately 10:40 p.m. the evening of August 21, a 45-year-old man was struck by a vehicle that fled the scene at the intersection of West Lafayette Avenue and North Bentalou Street.
Shortly thereafter, an unmarked police car in the 1300 block of North Bentalou Street was hit by the same vehicle. The two crashes took place within only four blocks of each other. The officer in that crash suffered injuries described as non-life threatening.
Oddly, the driver fled the second accident only to return to West Lafayette Avenue and North Bentalou Street, hitting two parked cars and a light pole before coming to a stop. The suspect attempted to flee police but was taken into custody. After the suspect is released from the hospital he will be formally charged.
The police officer whose vehicle was struck sustained a leg injury and the pedestrian hit in the initial accident is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.
At the time of the report, no further details were available.
Goldberg Finnegan's attorneys hopes for a speedy recover for both of the victims injured in these hit-and-run incidents. When a driver flees the scene of an accident, they are not only putting their own safety at risk, but they have unfairly left their victims to cope with the aftermath of the collision on their own.
