A multiple vehicle accident in Fruit Cove, just south of Jacksonville, Florida, sent three people to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center late last night. A man ran from the crash site into nearby woods and was arrested Friday morning.
Because the driver fled from the scene and hid in the woods, one must wonder if he was intoxicated. Unfortunately, if enough time passed before he was arrested, blood alcohol testing may not be worthwhile.
As Jacksonville auto accident lawyers, we notice that some of the worst drivers, especially drunk drivers, tend to be irresponsible across the board. Often this translates into such drivers having little or no bodily injury liabilty insurance.
Your best ally if such an auto accident occurs is to have significant uninsured motorist coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage will provide you payment for medical expenses, lost wages, disability and pain and suffering for personal injuries caused by an uninsured driver.
