Phoenix, AZ (September 26, 2019) – A man was injured in a hit-and-run scooter accident on Indian School Road after a female driver struck him and continued driving.
The woman was since identified as 23-year-old Khamari Vandell Thomas. She had gotten into an argument with the driver of the scooter, identified only as a man.
Witnesses said that Thomas was driving a Volkswagen Jetta aggressively while driving close to the driver of the scooter. Thomas brake checked the scooter rider and the man crashed his scooter.
The driver of the scooter was thrown from the scooter and struck his head on the ground. He suffered multiple skull fractures, a brain bleed, and other serious injuries.
Thomas made several 911 calls but never stopped at the scene and continued driving to work. She was charged with leaving the scene of an injury accident.
Police continue to investigate the circumstances of the accident.
Our thoughts are extended to the victim and his family with hopes of a full recovery.
Though scooter accidents do not happen as commonly as other Arizona accidents, they still continue to lead to serious injuries. Scooter accidents tend to lead to such severe injuries because victims have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving a large vehicle. Being injured in one of these collisions can be a life-altering experience, causing victims medical treatment and months of therapy until they recover, if at all. This means excruciating pain and consequences they are not prepared for in many cases. It is essential for a victim to speak with an Arizona personal injury attorney in their time of need.
