Failure to stop after being involved in an accident in Missouri can have severe repercussions. While it often requires thorough investigation to locate hit-and-run drivers after car accidents, information from eyewitnesses may make the task of law enforcers much easier. One such incident recently took place in Kansas City.
Whenever drivers are involved in car accidents, the law typically requires them to stop and provide contact information -- regardless of whether it is a pedestrian, another car or property that was struck. When a driver deliberately leaves an accident scene, it is regarded as a hit and run accident. Missouri residents will likely know that expenses following personal injury or property damage could add up to sizeable amounts, and pursuing recovery of damages following hit and run car accidents may prove to be complicated.
Missouri police have tracked down a woman whose vehicle allegedly struck and killed a bike rider on a recent Sunday. Bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles frequently have a bad outcome for the riders involved. In this particular collision, the man was killed on impact with the car.
