We have talked about hit and run crashes in the past. Getting injured by a hit and run driver can make a tragic incident take a long time to get resolved. Police have to find the person responsible so you can file a lawsuit or make a claim on their insurance.
A woman in Denver is claiming she was falsely accused of a hit and run accident. An insurance company sent her a letter saying they had proof that she caused a hit and run accident in Atlanta back on April 19th. They threatened to sue her if she didn’t pay the insurance company and get her license suspended.
However, she claims that she was innocent. She has evidence on Facebook that shows she was in downtown Denver on the day of the accident, but the police report has her Colorado license number and a description of her Chevy Impala.
The insurance company has dropped the claims, saying there is no way they can substantiate that the woman in question was really the hit and run driver. All they had to go on was the police report, and it is possible that the officer recorded incorrect information.
It does sound like the insurance company was able to provide compensation to the original victim, and we hope that the police are able to find out who really caused the accident.
