Houston, TX – 3 Children Injured In Hit-And-Run Accident On Telephone Rd
Houston, TX (September 15, 2019) A hit-and-run car accident happened on the night of September 14th. Reporters revealed that a vehicle ran a red light near the intersection of Telephone Road and Broad Street, and crashed into a vehicle that contained four people, three of which were children under the age of 10. The accident happened at approximately 11:53 p.m.
The paramedics rushed to the scene and found that one of the children ejected out of the vehicle. Fortunately, the child was okay and taken to Texas Children’s Hospital with the other three children. Some of the injuries reported were broken arm and small lacerations.
There were four individuals inside the vehicle that caused the collision. All of them left the vehicle and ran until they were picked up by a dark-colored sedan.
The police are still searching for all of the people involved in this hit-and-run collision.
Our thoughts are with all of the injured children and their families at this time.
Hit-and-Run Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, nearly one million hit-and-run accidents take place annually in the country. When drivers intentionally flee the scene of an accident, the cause is usually intoxication, recent criminal history, and fear of being arrested. Once drivers are caught, they end up facing multiple charges that they probably wouldn’t have faced if they just remained at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.
Anyone who was wrongfully harmed in a hit-and-run accident caused by negligent drivers deserves to be fairly compensated for all damages and losses.
