Fatal Hit-&-Run Crashes in Florida
According to data, 25% of collisions in Florida are hit-and-run incidents. Drivers that opt to depart the site of the accident rather than calling 911 are implicated in these tragic accidents, and they are doing more than just committing a crime. The victims of pedestrian hit-and-run accidents are frequently seriously hurt or even killed, and the rate of fatal hit-and-runs has increased significantly in recent years.
