Columbus Driver Flees Scene Of Accident, Causes More Crashes

A Columbus man recently put dozens of peoples' lives at risk when he attempted to flee the police. The chaos began soon after a minor fender-bender at Whittier and Parsons Avenues. Both vehicles stopped and the drivers got out. Police, who had observed the accident, asked if they needed help. That's when one of the drivers climbed back into his black SUV and sped off.

Police tailed the SUV as it collided with numerous other vehicles before striking a utility pole, knocking out power to nearby homes. The man's deadly attempt to evade police damaged 14 automobiles. Fortunately, nobody was killed or seriously injured in the series of accidents.

Police apprehended the man, but didn't state why the driver fled them.

Police chases kill people every year in Ohio. Usually, the fleeing driver is the only one liable for the harm caused, but sometimes officers fail to follow protocol and unnecessarily put civilians' lives at risk.

If you've been injured by a fleeing vehicle or pursuing cruiser, contact a skilled Columbus car accident attorney to discuss your legal options for recovering damages.
