May 25, 2011, ERIE, PA — Erie Police are asking that people with information about a hit and run accident come forward to help identify one of the drivers involved. Originally relayed in our blog posts of April 6, 2011 and April 5, 2011 , the Erie hit and run pedestrian accident occurred at the intersection of 12th Street and German Street on April 4, 2011. Trey Moffett, 18, was crossing East 12th Street when he was struck by an eastbound motorist. The impact knocked him into the westbound lanes where he was struck by a second vehicle.
Police have identified and spoken to the driver of the first vehicle but they have not yet identified the driver of the second. Anyone with information is asked to contact Erie Police Sgt. Jeff Annunziata at 814-870-1419.
Help for People Injured by Hit and Run or “Phantom” Drivers
Generally, people who are victims of Pennsylvania hit-and-run accidents should be aware both that there is a possibility of recovery from their own Pennsylvania car insurance and they should also know that there may be special notice requirements of such coverage when “phantom vehicles” are involved. If these notice requirements are not met in a prompt manner then the injured person can lose their right to recover. People injured in “phantom vehicle” or hit-and-run accidents should waste no time in consulting with an experienced Erie hit-and-run lawyer (particularly because most Erie injury lawyers charge nothing for an initial consult).
