2 vehicles collide, 1 suffers injuries, 1 flees

Crashes can happen almost anywhere, and the devastation they cause can be shattering. In many cases, crashes end up resulting in serious injuries for at least one victim, block off roadways and damage the surrounding area.

Take, for example, this crash in Nebraska that took place on Jan. 30. According to the news article, there were two vehicles involved in the collision, which resulted in one man being critically injured.

The crash happened at approximately 9:00 p.m., shutting down the southbound lanes of Interstate 480 at its intersection with Martha Street. It backed up traffic and delayed drivers until the authorities were able to move the vehicles.

What caused such a serious problem on the highway?

The police reported that a 2007 Dodge Caravan had been stalled in one of the southbound lanes of the highway when a 2007 Ford Econoline van struck it from behind. This led the driver of the Dodge vehicle to suffer serious injuries. He, a 60-year-old man, was rushed to Nebraska Medical Center for treatment. He reportedly had injuries to the back and abdomen.

The driver of the Ford fled the scene and hasn't yet been found, but the vehicle is still in police possession. It should not take long before their identity is discovered.

This kind of situation is made worse by the fact that the driver hit the vehicle and ran without a thought about the consequences of those actions. If you're hit, know that you can make a claim once the hit-and-run driver is found and identified by the police investigating the case.
