Pennsylvania car accidents are supposed to end with an exchange of information between drivers. An October, 2013 car crash in Erie has ended with a driver going to jail for leaving the scene without providing information.
Jovan D. Crosby, 26, was sentenced in the Erie County Court of Common Pleas to one to two years in prison for fleeing the scene of an accident with a pedestrian. The Erie pedestrian car accident occurred on October 2, 2013 at the intersection of East 12th Street and Wayne Streets when Mr. Crosby struck a young woman who was crossing 12th Street.
Mr. Crosby fled the scene of the accident. He was arrested by Erie Police when they found him later that night at the intersection of 28th and Brandes Streets in Erie. An officer at the scene observed Mr. Crosby to have “glossed over and red eyes” and to smell of marijuana. Mr. Crosby was later charged with fleeing the scene of an accident involving death or personal injury and dui.
The accident victim survived the Erie hit and run car collision but she suffered serious injuries and was in critical condition at the scene. The woman declined to speak at Mr. Crosby’s sentencing.
