Authorities are investigating a car crash at the intersection of Southwest 144th Street and Southwest 157th Avenue that sent two people to the nearest hospital.
Law enforcement officials say the crash happened at the intersection of Southwest 144th Street and Southwest 157th Avenue. The driver of a Yukon SUV was traveling southbound on Southwest 157th Avenue towards the intersection of Southwest 144th Street.
The Yukon collided with a Toyota Corolla that was attempting to make a left turn on Southwest 144th Street. The impact of the collision caused the Corolla to roll over before coming to a stop. Witnesses reported that both vehicles caught fire after the accident.
Both drivers were seriously injured and were taken to the nearby hospital for medical attention. Emergency crews were at the scene of the accident to clear the wreckage as law enforcement officials conducted on-scene investigations.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident and the other driver has left the scene of the crash, you need to act quickly. It is best if you can get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses along with a vehicle description. Contact the police immediately and file a police report. Take photos of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle or property. Contact any businesses or homes in the area that may have video surveillance of what occurred and the vehicle that fled. All of this will assist the police in locating the hit and run driver. Finally you should contact a car accident attorney to help guide you through this difficult process.”
