SUV causes multiple rear-end auto collisions in Hartford

It can be a scary situation when a reckless driver hits multiple cars and keeps on going, with no intention of stopping. It can be even more frightening when victims are seriously injured. That was what happened on a recent night in Hartford when the driver of an SUV went out of control and had to be tracked down by witnesses.

The accident happened on the evening of Aug. 29 at a Hartford intersection. The SUV hit a smaller car and kept on going. It hit another car and attempted to escape by traveling north on Broad Street. It crashed into several other vehicles in the process. The driver still did not voluntarily stop. However, witnesses were able to track down the driver and corner him until authorities arrived.

Several people were hurt in the accident, with one suffering serious injuries. All were taken to local hospitals for treatment.

The car crash is still under investigation by police. It is unknown if the driver will face charges for causing the multiple rear-end auto collisions.

Hitting other vehicles is no laughing matter. The driver's negligence caused serious injuries and vehicle damage. He may now face several criminal charges for his reckless behavior. He could be charged with hit and run and may face serious penalties, especially since his actions caused serious injuries to at least one victim. If his behavior was caused by drug or alcohol intoxication, then he could face penalties for that offense as well.

Besides criminal charges, the man could face civil suits from the victims as well. He may be forced to pay for medical expenses and lost wages.
