Two drivers and two passengers were injured in a Los Angeles car accident involving a hit-and-run driver the night of February 6, 2011. According to a news report in the Daily Breeze, the hit-and-run car accident occurred in the southbound lanes of the 110 Freeway in Redondo Beach. A 43-year-old man driving a 1999 GMC was travelling in the fast lane when a 2007 Dodge crashed into its left side and caused it to rollover. A 22-year-old man driving a 2007 Toyota in the neighboring lane crashed into the center divider when he attempted to avoid the accident. The driver of the Toyota, the driver of the GMC and a 43-year-old woman and 1-year-old passenger in the GMC were hospitalized for their injuries. Police are searching for the driver of the Dodge, who left the scene of the car accident.
My thoughts and prayers are with the injured victims of this Los Angeles hit-and-run car accident. I wish them all a speedy and complete recovery from the injuries they have sustained.

Hit-And-Run Car Accidents
It is illegal to leave the scene of an injury car accident. California Vehicle Code Section 20001 (a) states: “The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident.”
In addition to being a serious crime, leaving the scene of a car accident where people, including a child, have been injured is simply cruel, inhumane and irresponsible. I trust the police are able to quickly track this reckless driver down and hold him or her accountable..
