Hit and run accident

Hit and run accident

Many reasons can lead a driver to run after a hit-and-run accident. For instance, the driver failed to register or insure the car, the driver is under the alcohol influence, drug influence, wanted by the police, or the at-fault driver caused a severe injury to the other driver and was afraid of being responsible for more significant charges. Leaving the scene of an accident without waiting for the authorities to arrive or complete the proper procedures can be a severe offense. When the at-fault driver leaves the scene, the at-fault driver creates a strong possibility of injuries becoming more serious or leading to death caused to the other driver.

 

Fleeing the scene by the at-fault driver will make it harder for you to gather evidence. At first, try to remember as much as you can the license plate number, vehicle color, vehicle make, vehicle model, and any special characteristics of the car. Which direction did the driver go after the accident and fleeing the scene? If you can see the driver, try to remember how the driver looked and what he was wearing? Do not try to follow the at-fault driver because that can cause more injuries, and you can cause another accident either to you or to other drivers.
