Racing Likely a Factor in Fatal Virginia Car Crash

Comments (0)

What Happened:

Illegal racing on the highway may have been a factor in a fatal two-car crash that also seriously injured a passenger on September 5, 2012. The crash occurred when the two cars touched on Garth Road near Midway Farm Road in Albemarle County, VA. One of the cars ran off the road, killing the driver and injuring the passenger. The other driver who fled the scene was found and charged with hit-and-run and racing on the highway.

The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

This tragic accident illustrates how important it is to drive the speed limit and follow the law. Our Virginia car accident attorneys unfortunately are all too familiar with the effects of speeding and driving recklessly. As investigators try to piece together who is at fault in this wreck, both the family of the deceased driver and his injured passenger should consult with an experienced attorney to assist them with any insurance claims or lawsuits that need to be filed.

Potentially Helpful Info:

Even though the other driver was located after the car crash, he was still charged with hit-and-run because he did leave the scene of the accident. The information found here regarding hit-and-run accidents is useful to anyone who has been a victim of this type of wreck or who has been hit by an uninsured driver.
