Last year, an Evanston police officer fled the scene of a hit-and-run, after severely injuring an Indiana motorist. According to an article in the Northwest Indiana newspaper The Times, the accident occurred just after midnight on August 23, 2015, where the forty-year-old officer allegedly turned across oncoming traffic into the path of the motorcycle. The Evanston native has been charged with “leaving the scene of the crime,” and was forced to take an unpaid administrative leave—pending his investigation.What if I’m the Victim of a Serious Accident?
