Heather Locklear Charged in Hit-and-Run Auto Accident
Actress Heather Locklear was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run auto accident near her home in Los Angeles last weekend. According to police reports, she crashed into a street sign near her home and fled the scene without reporting the auto accident.
Security cameras from the golf club community where the accident took place showed a vehicle registered to Locklear passing by, but there was no footage of her car hitting the sign. However, debris at the accident scene has provided sufficient evidence to prove Locklear’s car was involved in the auto accident.
According to Locklear’s lawyer, it is not clear whether she was driving the vehicle at the time of the auto accident. Police charged her with a misdemeanor hit-and-run offense, and she must appear in court next month to deal with the charges. It is uncertain whether there will be enough evidence to prove that Locklear was the driver.
This is not the first time Locklear has faced criminal charges for a driving violation. In 2008, she was arrested on DUI charges which were eventually dropped after she pleaded guilty to reckless driving instead.
If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. An experienced auto accident lawyer can make sure your rights are protected and that insurance companies deal fairly with you.
