San Francisco, CA – One Hurt After Hit-and-Run Crash on Eastbound 80

Fatal two-vehicle crash in Sacramento

San Francisco, CA (July 31, 2018) – A hit and run crash left one person hospitalized on Sunday night.  The hit and run occurred in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 in San Francisco.  Police say the trouble began with two cars engaged in a speed competition around 11:25 pm near the Treasure Island off-ramp.

One of the involved vehicles collided with several other vehicles on the interstate and then fled the scene.  Police and paramedics were called to the scene.  One person was treated for injuries before being transported to a local hospital to receive additional treatment.   The extent of their injuries is not known at this time.

Police are searching for the hit and run driver and both drivers involved in the speed competition.  Officers are believed to be looking for a Lexus GS350 and a 4 door Honda sedan.  Two people are reported to have exited the SUV following the crash and fled on foot.

California Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash.   The name of the injured victim has not been released at this time.

Southern California Hit and Run Crash

This crash certainly could have been avoided.  Not only was this a hit and run but also a speed competition.  It goes without saying that a speed competition on the interstate is an incredibly reckless and dangerous driving activity.  With little time to react, collisions are nearly inevitable.  The only fortunate result is that no one suffered a fatal injury.

When the responsible drivers are located they will face criminal charges.  A civil suit by the injured victim is also a legal option.  Undoubtedly, negligence in this type of case should be easy to prove.  Once negligence is proven, the value of the case will depend on the injuries and damages sustained.  This depends on the type of injuries, the number of medical bills, the type of treatment needed and lost wages, if any, incurred by the victim.
