Pedestrian Hit by Motorist Tuesday, Early Morning
Motor vehicle accidents are a regular occurrence in St. Louis. However, what isn’t so common is for a driver to hit a pedestrian, and then leave the scene of the accident. This is precisely what happened this Tuesday morning in October in south St. Louis according to an article on KSDK.com.
The accident occurred on the corners of South Grand and Meramec during the early morning hours. While this particular motor vehicle accident did not result in serious injuries for the pedestrian, quite often, these types of accidents end up much differently.
Many pedestrians have been killed by drivers who hit them and then leave the scene of the accident. At the time of the printing of the news article, the driver was still unknown to authorities, who are continuing to search. Even though this pedestrian was fortunate enough not to be seriously injured at the time, some injuries don’t become apparent until later on. In that case, it’s important to know a good St. Louis personal injury attorney to ensure adequate representation and compensation.
