Mendocino, CA - Pedestrian Injured in Hit-&-Run on State St

Under California law, a hit-and-run accident has occurred whenever a driver is in an accident with another vehicle, a cyclist, a pedestrian, or object, and flees the scene of the crash without making any attempt to identify themselves, or offering any essential, life-saving aid to victims who may be in urgent need of assistance. 

It does not matter whether the fleeing motorist is responsible for the accident or not, leaving the scene is a crime and will be treated as such. If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run driver, the first thing you need to do is notify the local authorities so they can quickly open an investigation that will help identify and locate the dastardly driver.
