Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham would like to remind readers that they could face serious felony hit-and-run charges even when they flee from an accident that they did not cause. A recent hit-and-run accident involving a Umatilla woman illustrates this point very well.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers are looking for a motorcyclist who may have caused a fatal hit-and-run accident with another motorcyclist in Lake County recently. The accident that killed a 54-year-old Orlando man occurred around 6:00 p.m. one recent evening on County Road 48 a bit east of U.S. Highway 27. Troopers report that they are looking for the rider of an orange or maroon Harley-Davidson Soft Tail Classic that likely has damage on each side. They report that the hit-and-run rider was wearing a black helmet at the time of the accident and probably has lacerations on his back and arms from the accident.
