Hit-and-Run Motorcycle Accidents
Over 700,000 hit-and-run accidents take place annually throughout the nation. Thousands of hit-and-run accidents involve motorcyclists, especially at night when drivers believe it’s easier to flee the scene. Most of the time drivers who have a criminal record flee the scene of an accident, especially after striking a police officer. If the accident happens late at night, there’s a high probability that the driver is also under the influence and may or may not be aware that they even struck someone.
