Local authorities in Lakota, North Dakota are looking for the driver of a semi tractor trailer who was involved in an injury accident that hospitalized four people on Sunday.
North Dakota State Highway Patrol authorities said the semi truck failed to yield to other traffic on U.S. Highway 2 and sent two vans into a roadside ditch. The truck then continued down the highway without stopping.
Four occupants of the other vehicles were injured and taken to local hospitals, but their names have not yet been released.
Officials have described the truck as a white semi that was not pulling a trailer at the time of the crash. If you have any information on this truck or its driver, contact the North Dakota Highway Patrol Headquarters at 701-328-2455.
Leaving the scene of accident is a serious offense. If the truck driver is found to be responsible for the accident, he may face criminal charges as well as a potential personal injury lawsuit from the injured parties. Anytime you are involved in a car accident, even if you didn’t cause the wreck, stay at the scene until police arrive.
If the driver is never found, the injured parties may be able to make a claim against their own insurance policy’s ‘uninsured motorist’ coverage. These policies are created to protect people if they are injured in crashes with drivers who don’t have the legal minimum liability insurance, but it can also be used in hit-and-run cases. Injured drivers should contact a car accident or personal injury lawyer before talking to an insurance company representative, however, to make sure they understand all their rights.
