    Drunk Driver and Police Chase

    My friend recently had a horrible car accident. She was driving at night, when a drunk driver ran a stop sign and smashed into her car. Before my friend even had time to figure out what happened, the cops were there. She found out later, that the drunk driver had stolen a car, and the cops were chasing him. My friend said that she heard no sirens, and saw no lights, so she did not know. What can be done in this situation, because there are doctor bills to be paid, and my friend now has no car.

    She will need to sue the driver once the police catch him. Also, her insurance company should cover these expenses.
