Atlanta School Bus Accident Involved Hit and Run Driver

By Grant Law Office on January 22, 2013

Several children were injured in an Atlanta school bus accident when the bus carrying 29 high school students collided with a vehicle whose driver then left the scene of the crash.

According to a news report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the hit-and-run accident occurred on Hightower Road in northwest Atlanta. Officials say the bus was hit by a white pickup truck that had a silver toolbox. Several children sustained neck and back injuries, but none of the injuries are believed to be serious. It is not clear if officials have tracked down the driver responsible for leaving the scene of the crash.

It is against the law to leave the scene of an accident when someone has been injured. Under Georgia Statute 40-6-270: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or the death of any person or in damage to a vehicle which is driven or attended by any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of the accident or shall stop as close thereto as possible and forthwith return to the scene of the accident and shall…exchange information and provide reasonable assistance to the victim.”

If you or a loved one has been involved in a hit-and-run accident, it is important that you speak with a skilled attorney right away. A knowledgeable car accident lawyer will stay on top of the official investigation to make sure that the at-fault driver is held responsible for his or her actions. A hit-and-run lawyer can help families understand how their own auto insurance policy applies in accidents where the suspect is not apprehended, or, when the accident involves an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
