A Riverside car accident the afternoon of October 26, 2010 resulted in serious injuries for a motorcyclist. The Press-Enterprise reports that the injury car accident happened at the intersection of Winchester and Benton roads in Murrieta when a motorcyclist was hit by another vehicle. The driver fled the scene of the car accident. Witnesses told police that the red Chevy Lumina that struck the motorcyclist had a license plate number of 3EAD627. Police are looking for the driver, who they say, will be charged with felony hit-and-run when apprehended. An investigation is ongoing.
I certainly hope that the motorcyclist did not suffer major injuries in this car accident. I pray that he recovers quickly and completely from whatever injuries he has sustained.

According to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic accident statistics, there were 17,158 hit-and-run car accidents that resulted in fatalities or injuries in California in 2008.

Holding Hit-and-Run Drivers Accountable
I hope the driver who caused this injury motorcycle accident is promptly located, apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. California law requires motorists to stop and remain at the scene of an injury accident, irrespective of whose fault the accident may be. It is appalling that this driver struck and injured another person and then took off as if nothing happened!
