Hit-and-Run Accidents in Arizona
According to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 30,000 auto accidents involving injuries occur in Arizona each year. Several of those crashes are hit-and-run accidents, where victims are struck and sometimes seriously injured by vehicles. Oftentimes, distracted or impaired drivers are responsible for these serious incidents and leave the scene to avoid legal consequences.
