Hit-and-run Driver Injures Two on Greensboro-Chapel Hill Road in Alamance County, North Carolina


December 08, 2019

ALAMANCE COUNTY, NC- Wxii12.com writes that a Dodge Durango struck another vehicle in Greensboro-Chapel Hill Road in Alamance County. The person driving the Durango then fled the crash scene.*

Two people, including the driver, in the other vehicle, suffered injuries in the collision. Responders transported both of the other people to the hospital. The injuries the victims sustained are not considered life-threatening.

Reports indicate that the Durango was spotted traveling southbound on N.C. Highway 49.

Police are still searching for the Durango and the driver who fled the scene of the crash. Anyone with information about the collision or the vehicle involved is being asked to contact the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

Hit-and-run crashes are increasingly common in the United States. Many of these crashes involve just property damage but do not lead to severe injuries. Other times, the crashes are deadly. The most serious collisions are often those involving pedestrians and cyclists. These vulnerable road users are often hit and killed by drivers who then leave the scene without rendering aid or reporting the accident. 

Hit-and-run drivers often puzzle people because of their heartless and immoral actions. According to AAA, these drivers are often under the influence and may be driving without a valid license. Drivers who are drunk know that they will face heightened penalties for an accident that they cause. While drivers who flee the scene will typically face even harsher penalties, many people choose to take this risk.

Catching these drivers is heavily dependant on witness statements. While physical evidence and possibly surveillance videos may help, it is people who often point law enforcement officers in the right direction.
