Hit and Runs | VideoAmy Fox | 11/9/2012
Hit and runs can happen along city streets, in parking lots and at private residences. Drivers will often take off because they are driving under the influence, without insurance, or a suspended license.
But, leaving the scene is not only a traffic violation, but a criminal offense.
"Leaving a scene of an accident can very widely,” said Minot Police Senior Officer Aaron Moss. “It can be something as simple as a traffic ticket for not giving immediate notice of a reputable crash on up to a felony level where someone who is injured or killed are more common. We`ll see misdemeanor violations of leaving the scene."
If you are involved in a hit and run accident, you need to call 911.
