Motorcyclist injured in hit and run has to investigate his own accident
Another motorcyclist was injured last week-end after he was struck by a hit and run driver who pulled out of a parking space and struck him. A surveillance video shows 35 year old Franck Guzman riding his motorcycle south bound on Boston Road when a driver pulling out of a parking area and crossing though traffic hit him. Guzman went flying in the air while the driver sped away and disappeared. Guzman could not stand up and was transported to the hospital to be treated. The police told him they would come to see him but never showed up.
Therefore Guzman after being released from the hospital headed to the police station with his wife to file a report. The police gave him a collision form to file and send to Albany but refused to investigate the accident further despite Guzman being able to get a video surveillance depicting the accident. When CBS asked the police why they would not investigate, they replied that Guzman presented himself at the police station with no injury and therefore there was nothing they could do.
