Crashes happen every single day on Atlanta’s roadways, though it is made all the harder when a child is involved. Even worse when the accident is caused by someone who is known by the family of the child.
It was off of Gresham Road at the Texaco near I-20. A man was followed by police officers and sped away when the lights came on around Moreland. The cops lost the man, but then found him again when he got off at Gresham Road, running into the child of his girlfriend at the gas station.
Once the vehicle was totaled, the man ran away on foot and hasn’t been seen since. The child who was hit sustained serious injuries like a fractured lung, but she’s making her progress toward recovery.
“I thank God her brain, everything is fine,” said the girl’s grandmother. “I thank God. It could have been worse.”
When the man is caught, he’s in for a series of charges. A trained Atlanta hit and run lawyer can help make sense of it all, ensuring that the family of the 7-year old gets the compensation that they deserve.
