Why Do Motorists Flee the Scene of an Accident?
In California, it is unlawful to leave the scene of the accident. Fleeing the scene of an accident, also known as a hit and run, is not only illegal but also extremely dangerous and harmful to others involved. Unfortunately, these incidents occur all too often for a wide variety of reasons.
Most often, a driver will flee the scene of an accident because they were:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Unlicensed or uninsured
- Engaging in road rage/aggressive driving behaviors
- Texting or using a cell phone while driving
- Committing a traffic violation
Simply put, hit and run drivers are often fearful of the consequences of their actions and, as a result, they flee. This can—and often does—have serious consequences for victims.

In a hit and run accident cases, the injured party has the burden of proof, meaning they must establish that the other driver was negligent and that the injured party deserves to be compensated for their damages caused by the other driver.
