Injured or killed in a hit and run!
Hit and run accidents are no joking matter. They can land the offender in huge trouble with the law. Plus, they are a cowardly act. Just think about all the ramifications caused by this type accident. Unfortunately, this morning there was a fatal hit and run accident in Houston, Texas.
This time, a bicyclist was hit and left for dead at the scene. The driver took off and has not yet been identified. As the police look for clues as to who did this, think about all of the domino effect.
A man was killed in a freak hit and run accident. That person’s family now has to deal with the sudden situation, possibly leaving children, a wife and family members devastated and most likely without one or even their primary source of income.
The person that hit the bicyclist now has to live with the guilt and remorse of killing a person. Since they left the scene of the accident, I am sure they follow the news to see what happened. By now they know they killed a person in a hit and run accident. Plus, when the person is found, and they will be found, they will have to face criminal and possibly civil charges. This will have a tremendous cost and can and will be devastating to the person as well.
A hit and run accident creates many victims. So please do not be one of them. If you are ever involved in a hit and run accident as the driver or passenger, please do yourself and everyone a favor and stop and render aid. Even if it was your fault. Even if you are intoxicated. Even if you have an arrest warrant. Stop and render aid and call 911 immediately. And wait for authorities to arrive. The only thing that will make the situation worse is fleeing the scene of an accident.
