Usually when police have the suspect's vehicle (assuming it is their vehicle, of course), it's only a matter of time before they have that person in custody. Perhaps with continued efforts from the community, they can resolve this situation even more quickly. Once that happens, though, there are still important factors to look into. Depending on why the driver left the scene, there can be unique avenues for victims and families to prepare for. For example, drunk driving is a common factor in hit-and-runs, and that can lead to dram shop law if a local bar illegally over-served the driver. Put simply, just punishing a driver is only one part of the puzzle. Steps must also be taken to ensure folks get as much help as they can.
