Philadelphia Hit-and-Run Crash Leaves Mother and Two Children Injured

A hit-and-run Philadelphia car crash in the early morning of August 7, 2011 left three people injured.

At around 3 a.m. on Sunday morning, a Land Rover ran a stop sign at the intersection of 5th and Venango Streets in Hunting Park and struck a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by a 24-year-old woman. Instead of stopping to render aid, both of the men in the Land Rover fled the scene.

The driver of the Malibu was taken to Temple University Hospital where she was treated for a fractured arm and pelvis.

Her two children, a 9-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl, were also injured in the crash.

The girl was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital where she was treated and released for minor injuries.

The boy suffered massive head injuries and is listed in critical condition at St. Christopher’s Hospital. Police have stated that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

This accident is still under investigation. Anyone with details pertaining to the accident, including information about the men in the Land Rover, is asked to contact the police.

The Philadelphia car accident lawyers at Cordisco & Saile wish a full recovery to the victims of this hit-and-run accident.
