A hit and run accident in Yuma today resulted in a lock down of several schools in the area. After the accident, five people were seen running from the vehicle, one running toward a school. Several weapons were then found nearby. Hit-and-runs are seemingly a weekly occurrence in the Valley. Just Thursday, a suspect from a fatal hit-and-run that occurred on March 3 was arrested. Police found that prior to his arrest, Christopher Chevalier’s car had been cleaned and the windshield had been replaced, possibly in an attempt to eliminate evidence.
A Hit and run can occur for many different reasons. The fleeing party may have no insurance or driver’s license, the car may be stolen, or they may be under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. In any event, the victims of such incidents are often not at fault and could be badly hurt or in the worst case, may have suffered fatal injuries. Leaving the scene, whether at fault or not, is extremely irresponsible, selfish, and not to mention illegal. The victims are many times entitled to compensation in these accidents.
