Occurrences of Hit-and-Run Wrecks Continue in Missouri, Kansas

As auto accident attorneys, Langdon & Emison has seen its share of injury cases that were the cause of a hit-and-run crash.  Sadly this week another example of this motorist trend occurred when the Leavenworth, Kan., Police Department arrested a 27-year-old woman in connection with a hit-and-run wreck that killed a 16-year old girl. 

Around 2 a.m. Saturday morning, Miranda Lynch, 16, was riding her bicycle north on Fourth Street in Leavenworth when she was struck by a 2015-2017 silver Subaru Outback. The driver fled the scene, leaving Lynch with her girlfriend, who called the police. 

Lynch was taken to a Kansas City hospital in “very critical” condition but died from her injuries on Sunday.  The suspect’s name has not been released.
