Hit and Run Accidents in NJ


Of course NO accident is good – but hit and run accidents can be particularly insidious – especially if the driver at fault has fled the scene. This past October 22, 2013, a man involved in a hit-and-run crash was arrested for drunk driving. It appears that the man, Ricardo Moreira, age 38, was driving a white pickup truck when he struck two cars in Harrison and then fled the scene. Fortunately, no one was injured.

In many situations, as with the one above, the driver has been drinking or is on drugs. Sadly, drivers who flee the scene often get away with it. For example, Union City Police are offering up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identity of the driver who recently caused a motorcycle to crash, killing the driver. Evidently, a car pulled directly into the path of Elizabeth resident and father of one Carlos Gonzalez Ospina, while he was riding his motorcycle, forcing him to swerve and crash. The driver fled the scene after briefly stopping.

Protecting yourself and your loved ones by making sure that you have uninsured motorist coverage is very important. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can file a claim with your insurance company to cover medical costs and other costs related to the crash. This UM coverage is specifically designed for situations like these, or when the at-fault driver has no insurance coverage.
