On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, a serious Louisville pedestrian accident occurred involving a driver that fled the scene, leaving a pedestrian lying on the ground with serious injuries. According to police, the accident occurred prior to 7:00 AM Tuesday morning.
This Northern Kentucky pedestrian hit-and-run accident took place at the corner of Reality Trail and Vision Place, south of the intersection of I-265 and Beulah Church Road. The male pedestrian was found with serious injuries and was taken to University Hospital for medical treatment.
Police discovered that 29-year-old Travis J. Beaty was the driver involved in this crash when he walked up to them at the accident scene and asked what happened. According to police, Beaty allegedly hit the victim, drove away without stopping, went home and parked his car, and then walked up to officers and asked what happened.
Beaty’s vehicle, a black 1998 Nissan Maxima, was found in his driveway with front bumper and hood damage. The arrest report also indicated that the windshield was busted and the “damage was fresh with loose glass still laying on the vehicle.”
Police arrested Beaty and charged him with operating a motor vehicle on a suspended driver’s license, leaving the scene of an accident, and first degree assault.
Police reported that the injured pedestrian was unconscious and suffered major head trauma and other injuries as a result of this accident.
Our Louisville accident attorneys would like to extend our best wishes to this injured pedestrian for a full and fast recovery.
