Former NBA Player Charged With Hit-and-Run Accident Along I-96

On November 6th, 2012 former NBA player, Duane Washington, was officially charged in a hit-and-run accident that took place along Michigan's I-96 back in September and left 70-year-old, Estella Vitins, with numerous cuts and broken bones in her leg. Although Washington originally stated he did not realize he had hit Vitins, accident reports indicated otherwise. As a result of the evidence revealed during the investigation, Washington was ordered to stand trial for charges of failing to stop at the scene of a serious injury accident.

Leaving the scene of an accident is illegal, regardless of whether or not you were at fault. Some of the immediate actions you should take if you have been involved in an accident include calling for emergency personnel to tend to the injured and to obtain an official police report, exchanging information with all involved parties, taking pictures of the accident scene and surrounding areas, getting contact information for any witnesses, and more. You should never admit guilt, simply provide your information, ensure an official police report is taken, and contact a Detroit car accident attorney at my firm as soon as possible.
