The SUV carrying actress Leah Remini, singer Jennifer Lopez and her two kids was stopped at a traffic light and rear-ended by a pickup truck Saturday evening around 8 pm. The traffic light was on the 22700 block of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and no one was injured.

The drivers got out of their vehicles to assess any damage and were about to exchange information when the man got into his truck and sped off.

He was arrested a short distance away by the police and had a suspicion of drunken driving.

We hope Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini are able to recover from this accident, and that the hit and run driver is held accountable. Hit and run drivers are cowards and criminals, and as Portland attorneys for hit and run injury victims we hope this driver is found soon. Remember, hit and run drivers can be punished in both criminal and civil cases.

According to Oregon law (ORS 811.705), drivers are required to remain at the scene if anyone is injured. If a driver does not do this, they can have criminal charges brought against them once they are found.

We encourage anyone who has witnessed a hit and run to come forward with information! You can call our office and we will ensure that your identity is protected, and the information is sent to the right person. If you feel more comfortable calling a hotline, Shulman DuBois LLC sponsors the Hit and Run Reward program that gives financial incentives for reluctant witnesses to come forward after hit and run incidents. Remember, you are helping the person who was hit and you helping protect our streets from drivers who do not obey the laws.

In cases like this, the hit and run driver can also have a civil lawsuit brought against them for all damages to the injury victim. Anyone injured by a hit and run driver has the right to seek legal recourse for injuries and damages to property. This compensation can come from the at-fault driver’s insurance or any personal assets they have.

In many cases, the hit and run driver left the scene because:

  • They did not have insurance.
  • They were driving intoxicated.

If the driver was driving intoxicated, you may still be able to file a claim with their insurance company, if you can identify the driver.

If you cannot find the driver, however, OR they do not have insurance, you can still file a claim through your own uninsured motorist (UIM) coverage on your own auto policy.

We understand that this is a complicated process, and we recommend discussing your case with a Portland hit and run accident attorney who offers free consultations if you have any questions.

Milwaukie Mom Pushing Stroller Injured in Hit-and-run

Alexis Yancey, 18, was pushing her 5-month-old son in stroller on the sidewalk when a car drove up and hit her. Yancey told the police she was able to push her son out of the way before she was hit.

A black Toyota Camry was speeding down a hill weaving in and out of traffic until it went to make a sharp right turn. The turn was made too soon and the vehicle side-swept Yancey and knocked her to the ground. The driver backed up the car and sped off.

Yancey suffered a hip injury in result of the hit-and-run. The driver was described as a tall white man possibly in his early 20s with a young black woman in the front passenger seat.

We hope Alexis Yancey is able to recover from this accident, and that the hit and run driver is held accountable. Hit and run drivers are cowards and criminals, and as Portland attorneys for hit and run injury victims we hope this driver is found soon.

Stuart Wade and his granddaughters, 7 and 9 years old, were intentionally rear-ended by an enraged driver who then sped off. The vehicle was then slammed into a fence and rammed into a tree.

The road rage incident began when the suspect pulled out of the Fern Prairie Store parking lot and started tailgating and honking at Wade.

Despite the significant damage to the vehicle, Wade and his granddaughters were not seriously injured and are lucky to be alive.

The Clark County Sheriff’s are looking for more information to find the suspect.

We hope Stuart Wade and his granddaughters are able to recover from this accident, and that the hit and run driver is held accountable.

Hit-and-Run Driver Gets 60 Days For Leaving Two Seniors Sprawled Across Pavement

nonieenyeart

Back in March a 54-year-old driver, Nonie Ann Enyeart, struck two women ages 71 and 76, in a Southeast Portland crosswalk and continued driving. On Tuesday Enyeart was sentenced to 60 days in jail and 3 years probation.

Soon after the crash, Enyeart was arrested when someone saw her minivan with the broken windshield parked next to her boyfriend’s house.

Enyeart pleaded guilty to felony hit-and-run driving, third and fourth-degree assault and she pleaded no contest to tampering with a witness for telling her boyfriend not to go to the police. She is full of remorse and aware the victims are still suffering from their injuries. Enyeart and her insurance company must repay more than $61,000 in restitution to the victims.

We hope the two older women are able to recover from this accident, and that the hit and run driver is held accountable. Hit and run drivers are cowards and criminals, and as Portland attorneys for hit and run injury victims we are glad the driver was found.

Man Texting and Driving Killed 74-year-old Cyclist Near Rainier

Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 9.21.14 AM

On Saturday Peter Linden, 74 of St. Helens, was killed after being struck by a hit-and-run driver who was texting. Linden, who was battling cancer, was biking along highway 30 west of Rainier when he was hit by a pickup. Linden was wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kristopher Woodruff, 34 of Vernonia, was driving the pickup truck when he was pulled over by an Oregon State Trooper a few minutes after he killed Linden. Woodruff was distracted by looking at text messages on his phone when he drove into the shoulder and struck Linden.

Woodruff gave the officer a North Dakota ID and did not have a valid drivers license. Court records show that he had previously been cited for driving without a valid driver’s license and driving uninsured in 2001.

Woodruff was taken to the Columbia County Jail on Manslaughter, felony hit-and-run and other charges.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Peter Linden. Hit and run drivers are cowards and criminals, and as Portland attorneys for hit and run injury victims we hope this driver is found soon. Remember, hit and run drivers can be punished in both criminal and civil cases.
