Pamela Gage Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash on Carter Drive in Arlington, TX

Arlington, TX — September 27, 2022, 36-year-old Pamela Gage was seriously injured in a hit-and-run collision on Carter Drive in Arlington.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:55 a.m. on Carter at Arkansas Lane. Preliminary investigation suggests Gage was driving a Ford Fiesta south on Carter and started to make a protected left turn at the Arkansas intersection. As she turned a westbound Honda Accord allegedly ran a red light and crashed into the driver's side of the Ford.

Gage suffered serious injuries in the crash. The Honda driver reportedly abandoned their vehicle and fled the scene on foot.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Pamela Gage Accident in Arlington

Reports say the driver ran from the scene on foot, but that at least means police have their car. That's often a good start for finding suspects, as authorities can follow the vehicle's paper trail back to its owner. Many times the registrant is the suspect, but if not they often at least know who was last driving it.

Once police apprehend a suspect they can hopefully learn why that person ran off after seriously harming someone, considering there's no acceptable reason for that. Maybe they just panicked, but it gets harder to buy that the longer they don't turn themselves in. Other times their reasons aren't so benign and they run to hide something from the law--illegal contraband like guns or drugs, active arrest warrants, or something else they think will land them in hotter water than the crash alone would have.

In some cases the driver is intoxicated and just drunkenly thinks running away is their best option. If that was true for the Arlington suspect, there may be added complications if a local business violated dram shop law. In that case the business would have a legal duty to help the victim get back on her feet after contributing indirectly to her damages.

Before questions of motive or consequences can really be considered, though, police must first find the suspect. With the vehicle in their possession, hopefully it's just a matter of time before they trace it back to someone with some answers. If that bears no fruit, maybe someone in the community will reach out with a tip or two. It may take a little time, but I remain confident that justice will be done.
