Hit and Run Accident Results in Fatality

A hit and run accident on Friday morning has claimed the life of one individual. The accident happened in Overland Park, Kansas at approximately 8:05 a.m. According to Overland Park Police, a Ford Focus was traveling on W. 123 eastbound when the driver ran a red light and collided with another vehicle in the intersection of W. 123 and Metcalf. The impact forced the Ford to hit additional vehicles. The driver of the Ford fled the scene of the accident on foot and entered a nearby apartment through an unlocked door. The suspect ran out of the apartment when the female occupant discovered him hiding in a bedroom. Police located the suspect nearby, and he was taken into custody. One fatality was confirmed in the accident, and at least one individual sustained serious injuries and was transported to the hospital. Police are investigating the accident and have determined the Ford was a stolen vehicle.

All drivers that are involved in an auto accident are required by law to remain at the scene of the accident and provide personal and insurance information. In the event that the driver flees from the scene, the accident is called a hit and run. Drivers may face criminal punishment for disobeying the law, but they should also be held accountable for your damages.
