Hit and Run Crash Destroys St. Louis Traffic Light

Everyone knows there are constantly reports of hit and run accidents in St. Louis. As your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, we hear of them all the time. One hit and run crash recently resulted in the destruction of a traffic signal in St. Louis at the corner of St. Louis Avenue and North Florissant.

According to the article on the Fox2News St. Louis website, the accident occurred around 5:30 in the morning. Fortunately, it was early enough that there weren’t many pedestrians on the road. If the accident had happened later on in the day, this situation certainly would have been much worse. The article states that authorities are still searching for the driver of the vehicle.

Hit and run accident cases can be difficult because most people are not able to obtain information about the other driver, such as a license plate number. However, in this day and age of technology, video cameras mounted on stores or at ATM machines can often identify hit and run drivers very easily. Even so, it takes the work of a knowledgeable, experienced attorney to uncover the felons who commit these crimes.

If you’ve been a victim in a hit and run accident, contact your St. Louis personal injury attorneys right away. You deserve to be compensated, and as your lawyer we will do the work to make sure you’re able to file a claim right away.
