Investigators are continuing to search for a white male in a white passenger van who struck a 15-year-old boy who was crossing I-55. The incident happened near the Reavis Barracks Road Exit.
Luckily, the boy was conscious at the scene and transported by ambulance to the hospital, however, there are no further details on his condition. But the driver who hit the boy took off and continued driving. Anyone with information regarding the driver is urged to call County Police at 889-2341 or Crimestoppers at 866-371-8477.
Personally, I find these situations disgusting. How could a man hit a young teenager and just keep on driving? Unfortunately, as a St. Louis Car Accident Lawyer
, I see these situations all the time, but it still continues to disgust me.
In hit-and-run accidents, many people think they have no recourse. However, this is not the case. Ever person with car insurance has uninsured motorist coverage which steps into the shoes of the unknown hit-and-run driver. Of course, just like when suing the defendant driver directly, it is still a fight to get the money from your own insurance company and this often involves legal action. A good number of the car accident cases I handle are claims directly against insurance companies for hit-and-run accidents.
