Hit-and-run accident leaves pedestrian injured

A serious accident occurred in the eastern part of Reno and has left a man clinging to life. The devastating incident happened at the intersection of Sixth Street and Valley Road in the early hours of the morning. The man was discovered in the roadway with significant injuries to his face and head. He was taken to the hospital and it is reported that he is in critical condition.

What makes this story even more tragic is that the vehicle and driver that allegedly hit the man were not at the scene of the accident when law enforcement and rescue officials arrived. The absence of a driver and vehicle has left police calling the incident a hit-and-run matter and they are currently working to collect video and picture evidence from the time of the accident to use to identify the driver who caused the victim's harm.

Hit-and-run vehicle accidents are difficult on many levels. Aside from the serious injuries and losses that victims must contend with, they must also exercise patience as authorities attempt to find the people who caused their harm to occur. Hit-and-run perpetrators often face criminal sanctions as well as civil penalties for their involvement in their crashes and their failure to stay at the scenes of the accidents they cause.

With any luck the victim of this tragic incident may recover and may be able to provide law enforcement officials with information that may lead to the identification of the hit-and-run driver. Until then, he and his loved ones may search for ways to keep their lives moving forward despite the loss of his contributions and the mounting medical bills that are assessed for his ongoing hospitalization.
