Richard Lynn was hospitalized after a hit-and-run accident Friday night, February 11, 2011. Lynn, age 50, was walking in front of 2305 Madre Place in Greensboro, North Carolina, when a cream or tan-color, newer model Cadillac struck him and left the scene. Police responded to the hit and run at 9:15 p.m., news reports said.

Lynn was reported in stable condition late Friday evening at Moses Cone Hospital.

Police ask those with information to call Crimestoppers at 373-1000.

Hit-and-run accidents are almost always an ugly business. Simple panic is one of the first reasons a driver runs from a crash. But other factors can play into and build on that panic and impulse to get away. These are a few:

  • A bad driving record. 
  • A suspended or revoked license. 
  • A criminal record. 
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. 
  • The knowledge of the driver that he or she was at fault and driving recklessly, or while distracted, or simply too fast.

 

In any case, when a driver hits and runs, it indicates a rash or desperate decision.

We hope that the driver in this incident will be caught, and that Mr. Lynn will recover fully and will be compensated fairly for his ordeal.

A detailed and official accident report that describes the accident is now available on www.egertonlaw.com.
