Highland Park Hit-and-Run Crash

Under California law, motorists are required to remain at the scene of a car accident. This law is in place to protect accident victims and to ensure that police officers are able to fully investigate every crash and the cause. However, in many cases, drivers who cause the accident will ignore this law and will leave the scene before officers can arrive. Not only does this complicate the process of the police investigation, but it also potentially jeopardizes the legal rights of an innocent victim who was involved in the accident. In some cases, the negligent driver will not be located.
