Newport News Pedestrian Accident Injury Lawyer Report : Woman is Injured by a Hit and Run Driver on Sidewalk in Newport News
The highways of Newport News are dangerous enough for pedestrians who attempt to cross the road.
But in a recent accident a woman was injured walking on the sidewalk when she was hit by a car on Bland Boulevard in the Denbigh area of Newport News, WVEC.com.
To make matters worse the driver fled the scene and police are seeking a hit and run driver. The accident happened at about 9:15 a.m. on November 9, 2012.
Police say witnesses noticed the car mounted the curb and, after hitting the woman, someone in the car got out to talk to the woman before driving off.
Clearly a driver was at fault in this accident and the pedestrian should be entitled to make a claim for injuries she suffered.
