The Facts About Hit and Run Drivers
An at-fault driver flees the scene of a U.S. road accident every minute, according to a 2018 study published by the Foundation for Traffic Safety, an arm of the American Automobile Association (AAA). Many southern states are statistically the worst for fatal accidents in which the at-fault driver flees. Texas is among the top ten in this troubling category.
Texas also ranks high for driving while intoxicated. There is some correlation between driving under the influence and fleeing the scene.
Of course, not everyone who flees after a crash is intoxicated. Some leave because they are uninsured and have no idea how to face the financial ramifications of being at fault. Some leave because they are unlicensed drivers or have some reason to fear prosecution.
