Oakland, CA – Hit and Run Accident Results in Injuries

Oakland, CA (November 18, 2018) – A hit and run accident on Interstate 880 on Thursday morning resulted in several injuries according to an accident report filed by the California Highway Patrol group.

In the northbound lanes of the freeway near the Hegenberger Road off-ramp, a small grey sedan collided with a motorcycle. First responders to the scene reported finding the motorcyclist lying in the middle of the roadway At this time it is unclear what the extent of the rider’s injuries are. His identity remains unclear as well. The driver of the grey sedan left the scene, leaving the injured motorcycle rider all alone to fend for himself until authorities arrived. The traffic accident is still under scrutiny as police actively investigate the crime scene and track down witnesses in an attempt to identify the driver who illegally fled the scene.

There has been no update on the condition of the injured motorcyclist as of yet.

Hit and Run Accidents in California

In the state of California, like most others, you are legally required to remain at the scene of an accident in which you have been involved until law enforcement arrives. You are also required to show identification to the other people involved and provide a reasonable level of help, such as calling for the paramedics, to anyone who is injured. Once you have chosen to leave the scene of the accident, even if you were not the driver at fault, you are now facing criminal charges in addition to everything else. In California, hit and run accidents can be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies. Incidents involving property damage under a certain dollar amount are usually charged as a misdemeanor. Incidents that lead to injury and/or death, however, will most likely be charged as felonies. These charges will remain with the driver for the rest of their life.
