A hit-and-run accident on U.S. Highway 62 East near Henderson sent three people to the hospital according to an Arkansas State Police press release. The injured driver was struck in the rear by another vehicle traveling in the same direction.The impact caused the Ford Mustang to leave the roadway and overturn. The vehicle which struck the Mustang then left the scene of the collision. The driver and two passengers were transported to Baxter Regional Medical Center.
Hopefully, the police find the driver and the vehicle that was at fault in this wreck. However, many times the Hit and Run driver can’t be located and the injured victims are left wondering how their medical bills will be paid and how they may be reimbursed for lost time from work. Hopefully, this victim carried uninsured motorist coverage to handle this Hit and Run accident. It is important that all Arkansas drivers carry uninsured and under-insured insurance coverage on their cars. This insurance coverage will “kick in” when the other driver can’t be located or who does not carry adequate insurance coverage to fully take care of the injuries and damages that were caused by the accident.
If you or a loved on has any questions about possible insurance coverage it is important that you contact and Arkansas personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to make sure your rights are fully protected.
