DO NOT Follow the Driver After a Hit-and-Run Collision
If you are involved in a hit-and-run accident, the best thing to do is to call the police and make a report. DO NOT try to follow the other driver. You could end up causing another accident or putting yourself in danger. The police will investigate the accident and try to find the other driver and hold them accountable for their actions.
There are some things you can do to help the police find the other driver. If you have a description of the car or the license plate number, that will be helpful. The police may also be able to review security footage from nearby businesses or homes.
Following a driver who caused a hit-and-run collision can be dangerous in several ways, including:
