Car accidents are serious enough even when everyone involved does their best to be responsible and takes the appropriate actions after a collision has occurred. However, when this is not the case, it can be even more serious and even cause additional collisions and increased damages and injury. This was the situation in a series of accidents in Austin, Texas on March 8, 2014.
One car rear-ended another, and the driver of the car that was rear-ended was injured, but not seriously. This would not be that dramatic of an accident, except that the driver who rear-ended the other car tried to flee the scene rather than helping or taking responsibility for his driving. However, the fact that he was fleeing made him even less cautious, and he ended up colliding with other cars in his haste. By the time he finally fully crashed and came to a stop, eleven people had been injured, including one child, although fortunately none of the injuries were fatal.
