A Pueblo woman escaped injury Tuesday after a hit-and run accident. The Chieftain is reporting that the accident happened near the First Street on-ramp of Interstate 25. The victim was entering the interstate when an unidentified vehicle moved into the lane in front of the victim’s vehicle. The victim swerved to avoid the vehicle striking the concrete barrier and rolling the vehicle. The second vehicle did not stop after the accident. When someone has been seriously injured in a car crash, getting prompt medical attention is often the difference between life and death. “Therefore, it is viewed by many as a reckless disregard for human life when a driver fails to stop and give aid”, said Clearwater, Florida hit-and-run accident attorney Jim Dodson.
Anybody in a vehicle can become a fatality in a car accident. According to statistics by the NHTSA, 34,017 fatal crashes occurred in 2008. 19,220 drivers and 7,397 passengers were killed in car accidents in the United States.
