Pennsylvania hit-and-run accident leaves employee unable to work

A hit-and-run car accident caught entirely on surveillance camera caused serious injury to local worker. The incident ended with the suspect set to surrender to police.

Recently, a 32-year-old woman driving a Dodge Caliber pulled into a 7-11 parking lot around 10:30 p.m. in Yeadon, Pennsylvania. Two friends, a male and a female, were riding as passengers in the car. The video surveillance tape from the convenience store shows that the driver stopped her car before driving into a parking spot that she had just pulled out from. As she goes to accelerate into her previous spot, she crashed into the front driver's side of another car in the process of parking. Then, still gaining speed, the driver crashed into the front of the 7-11 building. In between her car and the building was a 24-year-old 7-11 employee.

The driver crashed into the employee, who was thrown through a window. He was rushed to the hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered in the crash. He is unable to return to work, but is no longer in the hospital.

After the accident occurred, the video shows the female passenger exiting the vehicle as if no accident has happened. The male passenger who was in the back seat falls out of the vehicle, and the 32-year-old female drives away. Police identified the female passenger, who is clearly visible in the surveillance tape, and brought her in for questioning.

Upon questioning, the female passenger revealed the identity of the driver. Police say they have been unable to contact her, but said the driver would turn herself in.

This accident is a clear example of the damage that can be caused by negligent driving. Not only did the driver in this case hit another vehicle, she hit a pedestrian who suffered serious injuries because of it. In cases like this one, it may be possible for a victim to hold the negligent driver accountable and obtain compensation for injuries sustained.
