Driver of PA Hit and Run Car Crash Sentenced to Prison

On November 22, a Philadelphia judge sentenced Nicholas Hasselback of Ephrata, PA, to 3 to 6 years in prison for a hit-and-run car crash that critically injured Tony Foltz, a Temple University student. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, immediately after the Pennsylvania car accident, Hasselback swept up broken glass from his vehicle and drove away.

In Pennsylvania, the law states that the driver of a vehicle involved in a car accident that results in injury or death of a person shall immediately stop their vehicle at the scene of the car crash or as close as possible but shall then return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of the Pennsylvania car accident until he/she has given information and rendered aid.

In this case, Mr. Hasselback can also be held civilly responsible for the numerous severe injuries he caused Mr. Foltz.
