After a car accident in New York, both drivers remain at the scene until law enforcement officials arrive. Because accounts of a roadway accident may differ based on perspective, law police may be called to fill out a report and take statements to help them determine what actually happened and who was at fault. If a driver involved an accident is driving illegally, they may attempt to flee the scene to avoid getting in more trouble with police.
Residents of an apartment building are thankful that no serious injuries occurred after the driver of an SUV that was on the run from another accident crashed into their building. In total, people from eight families were asked to leave the building after the accident so the damage to the building could be assessed, and so emergency workers could attempt to remove the vehicle from the building.
