Investigation ensues after 2 children were struck by vehicle

Whether you are young or old, traveling by foot is a convenient way for residents in Massachusetts to get around depending on where you are and where you seek to go. However, with any form of transportation, there are some dangers associated. And with being a pedestrian, there is the risk of being hit by a motor vehicle. If a driver is not paying attention or driving safely, this could result in a serious pedestrian accident.

According to recent reports, two children were struck by a vehicle in Springfield. Authorities reported that one child is expected to fully recover from the injuries suffered in the crash while the other child suffered more serious injuries. The status of the other child was not reported at this time, and the ages of the two children are not known.

Based on preliminary investigation, authorities claim that the driver of the vehicle left the scene of the crash; however, police are not referring to the crash as a hit-and-run. Apparently, the 35-year-old motorist was attempting to avoid a crown of unhappy people. The driver has not been charged at this tie, but investigation is still ongoing.

Following a pedestrian accident, it is important to understand what caused the crash. If a driver failed to uphold their duty to drive safe by not following the rules of the road, this could result in criminal liabilities. Additionally, victims could file a civil action. A personal injury claim could help injured victims recover compensation for losses and damages arising from the incident.
