A question often remains after crashes like this: why did the driver leave the scene? It's often a specific thing they didn't want police to find out about. Folks may think that doesn't matter, since that person will have their day in court, but there are certain possibilities worth looking into. Alcohol, for example, is common in hit-and-runs. If that person was on their way home from a bar, that bar could be liable for contributing to the victims' injuries. Does that sound like something that should just go overlooked? Of course not. So while that's just one possible factor, taking steps to make sure the victims know the whole story is always an important step forward.
