In Houston, Texas, police have charged a school teacher with a hit and run incident. The driver claims that she left the scene because there was a mob that had gathered and she feared for her safety. In leaving the scene of this pedestrian accident, there may have been evidence that left the scene with the automobile. When there is an automobile accident involving personal injuries, a person has a duty to remain at the scene of the automobile accident. There are similar laws in other States as well. It is certainly tragic that a young child (Destiny Garcia – age 8) died as a result of this incident. It is a loss that parents and family members will suffer for many years to come.
