What Happens When You Are in a Car Accident With a Hit and Run Driver?
Sometimes people are in an motor vehicle accident such as the one described below where the crash is with a hit and run driver.
What do you do if the other driver and vehicle can’t be located or determine who the driver is if they ran away from the accident scene?
Most insurance policies provide coverage under the uninsured section of their auto insurance policy for hit and run accidents. This is also known as UM/UIM coverage. There typically has to be physical contact between the vehicles before coverage is triggered.
Sometimes insurance companies will deny claim when they shouldn’t. If you have any questions about your auto accident please call David Polow for a free consultation. My phone number is [nap_phone id=”LOCAL-REGULAR-NUMBER-1″] and I am available seven days a week.

SUMMARY OF CRASH:
On the above date and time Vermont State Police received a 911 call reporting a
crash at the above listed location.
Upon my arrival I observed both vehicles, one in the west bound lane facing east
and the other in the east bound lane facing west. Both vehicles were not
operable. The operator of the truck was not present. I was advised that the
operator of the truck left on foot.
Upon investigation I was able to determine that the operator of the truck was
traveling east and entered the west bound lane of travel. The truck nearly
struck one vehicle before driving head on into the Toyota Corolla. The operator
of the truck was not the registered owner of the truck.
The Vermont State Police are currently investigating who the operator of the
truck was. Anyone with information about who the operator is, is encouraged to
contact the Vermont State Police Barracks in Westminster.
