Fatal Hit-&-Run Accidents in Texas
The only thing more upsetting than getting in an accident that wasn’t your fault is witnessing the motorist leave the scene of the collision, which is sadly not all that uncommon. Hit-and-run accidents caused about 5% of traffic fatalities, and the frequency of these accidents rose by nearly 7.2% last year. The majority of hit-and-run crash victims were pedestrians and cyclists who are unable to pursue the at-fault party.
