Berlin – Hit-And-Run On The Highway
State and local officials are currently investigating a highway crash in Berlin that occurred yesterday morning.
According to officials, at approximately 10:23 a.m., a still-unidentified car was driving south on Route 9 when it hit a pedestrian near Exit 23. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the area and has yet to be located. The victim sustained critical injuries in the incident and was pronounced dead soon after. Authorities are still investigating the crash and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have seen the suspect to contact the state or local police as soon as possible.
In practically all scenarios, instances of hit-and-run will only aggravate cases against drivers who are suspected of hitting other motorists or pedestrians. As victims of suspected reckless or negligent behavior, parties injured in these incidents may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of expert legal counsel.
