Man Caught After Phoenix Hit and Run

By Breyer Law Offices on January 5, 2012

As Phoenix hit and run car accident attorneys, we were happy to hear that a man was caught after hitting a pedestrian and then fleeing the scene on the morning of December 26, according to Fox 10. The 19-year-old driver drove the wrong way on 7th Street and Missouri, then hit a pedestrian walking a dog. The driver left the victim with multiple bone fractures to his head, face, and legs. Police caught him a few blocks later at a gas station, where they also found marijuana in his pocket. They determined the driver was under the influence of both narcotics and anti-depressants. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim, and we wish him a full recovery.
