Leaving the Scene -- Woburn District Court

Outcome: Complaint Not Issued

Description: Client, a 23-year-old Air Force Sergeant, was cited for Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident. The accident occurred around 5:00am on Rte 128. My client swerved after he was cut off by another vehicle. He struck some construction equipment on the side of the highway and was injured. He walked to the nearby Mobil Station and called for his friend to pick him up. He was then driven to a hospital and treated. The state police found his car and cited him for leaving the scene. At a Clerk's Hearing, my client explained what happened. The clerk remarked that my client was lucky to be alive. The complaint was not issued; my client will not face criminal charges.
