Should I Follow Someone Who Hit My Car and Ran?

If you are involved in a hit-and-run accident, it is important not to follow the other driver. Following the driver can lead to further accidents and put you in danger.

In this blog post, we will discuss the dangers of following a driver who has fled the scene of an accident. We will also provide tips on what to do if you are involved in a hit-and-run accident.

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:

  • The other driver could be intoxicated.
  • You could cause another accident if you try to follow the other driver.
  • The other driver could become violent if you try to confront them.
