Driver causes multivehicle crash while fleeing police

| May 23, 2019 | Personal Injury |

When the police try to pull someone over, it’s essential that those people do stop. When they don’t, their recklessness can lead to serious collisions.

Fortunately, in this case, no one was seriously harmed as a result of a police chase, though it did lead to multiple cars colliding in Hialeah. The incident occurred when a driver who was wanted on suspicion of several burglaries crashed into a number of vehicles while fleeing from the Miami-Dade police.

The driver of the black BMW sped through the streets, striking two other vehicles. One woman was seen limping after getting out of her vehicle, and the other driver was seen taking a child out of the wreckage. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, though there were some injuries. Further good news is that the suspect was taken into custody, so those who were injured will have someone to hold accountable.

Crashes like this one should be completely avoidable. People who are being pursued by the police need to stop and pull over as soon as they can. Not doing so can lead to crashes, especially if they recklessly drive through stop signs or intersections.

If you are hurt in a traffic crash, remember that the party who caused the crash can be held liable. Your injuries shouldn’t be overlooked, and you should be able to seek medical care without having to worry about being financially liable for the care you receive. Your attorney can help you file a claim against the driver who struck your vehicle and impacted your life as a result of negligent or reckless behavior.
