With today’s technology, it is almost impossible to remain anonymous for an extended period of time. When a person commits a crime — or is suspected of committing one — police are often able to quickly locate him or her. In fact, police in California are currently searching for a driver they say was involved in a motorcycle accident.
The incident is said to have occurred one morning on a day in late June. According to reports, a man driving a van exited the driveway of a convenience store, pulling directly in to the path of a southbound motorcycle. The motorcyclist reportedly collided with the rear driver’s side of the van.
Unfortunately, the motorcyclist was ejected and suffered severe injuries. Fortunately, he is expected to survive. The driver of the van reportedly left the scene, leaving police officers searching for him. Surveillance footage from the convenience store provides an image of the driver believed to have been involved, and police have released his description in a request to the public for help.
Fortunately for victims of a hit-and-run motorcycle such as this, California police have a variety of different resources to help them apprehend the suspected driver — often something a simple as issuing a plea on social media can lead to a discovery. While police search for the driver, the man injured in the motorcycle accident is now left recovering from his injuries. Due to medical expenses and lost wages, the recovery process can often create severe financial complications for victims. As such, the victim of this crash may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit once police identify the party they believe was involved. If the victim can prove that he was the victim of negligence, he could receive a financial award that will help him cope with the financial consequences of his injuries.
