On Wednesday night, an auto accident involving two vehicles caused one of the vehicles to crash through the wall of a church in St. Louis. The accident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Broadway Avenue when a vehicle was rear-ended at a stoplight. The driver that caused the accident attempted to flee the scene of the accident, which led to him driving through Trinity Missionary Baptist Church's' fence and parking lot until the vehicle crashed into the church itself. Although the authorities did not release the cause of the accident, the driver was arrested at the scene of the accident.
Hit and run accidents are described as traffic accidents where the at-fault driver flees the scene of the accident in order to suffer any consequences. Typically drivers, who attempt to leave the scene without leaving the law-required information, are doing so in order to avoid criminal charges, suffer financial loss, or have a claim filed with their insurance. It's necessary to contact an auto accident lawyer if you have been involved in a hit and run accident to receive a full investigation of the accident, having the possibility of the driver located, and recovering compensation.
