Our thoughts are with the deceased pedestrian’s family in this tragic accident.
All drivers have a duty to stop at the scene of a crash. When the driver knows that a person is injured, there is also a duty to remain on the scene and provide aid to the injured victim. Fleeing the scene of an injury accident is a felony and carries serious criminal and civil liability.
