Dallas, TX (8/11/2020) – One person is dead and another person is injured after a hit-and-run wreck in Dallas Sunday morning.
The accident happened around 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of West Camp Wisdom Road and North Clark Road. A woman, 29, was speeding on the northbound lane of Clark Road when she hit another vehicle, which caused that vehicle to hit a third vehicle stopped at the red intersection light.
The person in the vehicle the woman hit was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger in that same vehicle was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries.
The woman who caused the crash fled the scene and left the passengers inside her car.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Hit-and-runs are one of the most common accidents that we see and often involve claims that take extensive investigation to resolve. This is because when someone leaves the scene, it can be pretty hard to track down the person who ran, and it can be hard to prove that the victim was indeed struck by another vehicle. It is also hard to deal with insurance companies in these situations because there are so many reasons that can be used to deny the claim in its entirety.
