Hit-and-Run Oro Valley Car Accident Causes Injury

At the Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we were surprised by reports from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department (PCSD) detailing the results of a hit-and-run collision that happened July 10. The crash took place on Trade Winds Way just before 7 a.m. when two cars ran into each other and one of the drivers sped away.

One person who remained at the scene of the crash was injured, but reports did not indicate whether that individual was moved to the hospital for treatment. Police have not yet reported whether the driver who fled the scene has been found. We wish the injured individual all the best in recovery.
