A Chevy Tahoe was driving recklessly Wednesday night around 11:40 p.m. on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. The driver rear-ended a taxicab causing it to hit a concrete median and flip onto its' roof. The SUV then hit a Jeep from behind also forcing it into the concrete median. Six individuals were taken to local hospitals and were being treated for serious but not life threatening injuries. The Chevy Tahoe fled the scene of the accident and authorities are still searching for the driver.
Drivers often flee the scene of an accident to protect themselves from the consequences of their actions. The at-fault drivers may be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs; driving without a valid license or insurance; or, simply trying to avoid accepting any responsibility for the car crash. Hit and run accidents can be difficult to recover proper compensation making it imperative to contact an attorney to fully investigate the accident, gather evidence, and negotiate with insurance companies.
