About Hit and Runs
Hit and runs can involve two vehicles, a vehicle and a pedestrian, or a vehicle and a cyclist. There are several reasons why a driver may choose to flee instead of stopping after a crash. In some cases, a driver may be afraid to stop because he or she was breaking the law. The driver may have been drunk, driving without a license, or have a warrant out for his or her arrest. To avoid getting caught by the police, the driver may choose to leave the scene of the accident.
After a hit and run, you may be shocked and unable to get a description of the vehicle. If this is the case, witnesses may be able to help. It can also help to see if any security cameras caught the incident. Some hit and run drivers may turn him or herself into the police eventually. But unfortunately, many hit and run drivers cannot be located.
