On September 2, a moped rider was seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident, according to KRDO.com. The moped rider suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to the police. The crash happened around 9 p.m., near the intersection of Academy Boulevard and Astrozon Boulevard.
The moped rider was hit as he was traveling through the intersection. The suspect vehicle was in the intersection as well making a turn when it hit the moped. After the wreck, the suspect fled the scene before the police arrived.
The police kept the intersection closed for a few hours to allow the Major Accident Unit time to investigate the crash. After the Major Accident Unit had finished examining the scene, the police were able to clean up the intersection. The intersection was not reopened until about 11:30 p.m. . At the time of this report, the police were still searching for the suspected vehicle and its driver.
Despite not being at fault for the accident, the moped rider is probably the only one involved to suffer any injuries, and the moped rider’s vehicle most likely sustained more damage than the suspect vehicle as well. The driver responsible should be held accountable, if for no other reason than to prevent a repeat of the offense and to provide the victim with the compensation he or she needs to deal with the financial burden of the accident.
