Hit-And-Run Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, hit-and-run collisions occur every single day throughout the country. Most of the time these accidents occur late at night when drivers are likely to be under the influence and fatigued. After hours, drivers tend to believe they can get away with negligent behavior since there are fewer witnesses are on the road.
When drivers are eventually caught after fleeing the scene of an accident, their consequences are often far worse than they would have been had they remained accountable at the scene and cooperated with authorities.
