Hit-and-run car accident injures pedestrians in Texas

A recent pedestrian accident in Texas serves as a good reminder for drivers to exercise caution and for pedestrians to be aware of traffic when walking on or near local streets. Three pedestrians were injured when a driver struck them while they were on the sidewalk. To make matters worse, the driver apparently didn't stick around to check on his victims, instead choosing to flee the scene of the car accident.

The incident occurred in Austin recently, close to the Four Seasons Hotel. The pedestrians, three adults, were outside a cigar lounge when a vehicle drove over the curb and hit them. Without stopping, the driver continued on his way. All three victims were transported to the hospital for treatment, one suffering more serious injuries than the others.

Police were called shortly after the incident and were able to locate the individual believed to be responsible for the accident. He has been charged with a DWI, failure to stop and failure to render aid. Few additional details have been released regarding this investigation.

Pedestrians who have been hurt in a hit-and-run car accident may find it difficult to move forward without answers. Thankfully, the driver deemed responsible for this incident was found and is facing criminal charges for his actions. All three victims may also be entitled to pursue personal injury claims against this individual. If liability is documented by relevant evidence, a civil court in Texas may grant each victim financial relief for the damages sustained and also provide for the pain and suffering they have endured.
