A woman who was trying to cross the street at Robert B Cullum Boulevard and Metropolitan Avenue near Fair Park was struck by a pickup truck. Witnesses told officers the driver of the truck had stopped and checked on the woman, but drove away from the scene. Officers followed the male driver, but he fled about 10 blocks before crashing. His truck knocked down an electrical pole, struck a parked van and overturned in a field. Officers took the man into custody. Police said he will likely be charged with evading arrest and failure to stop and render aid.
If you have been injured in an hit and run accident or by an uninsured motorist, you may still be able to get an insurance company to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages if you have Uninsured Underinsured Motorist Coverage (sometimes referred to as UM/UIM coverage on your auto insurance policy).
