Hit and run accidents remain a threat. How can you protect yourself?

Hit and run accidents should never happen for any reason. Sadly, some drivers flee the scene of an accident, leaving you to deal with the aftermath of someone else’s reckless behavior.
Each year, there are an estimated 700,000 hit and run accidents nationwide, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Since December, several horrific hit and run accidents have already taken place. In Georgia, a driver fled the scene of an accident in Atlanta after hitting an 8-year-old boy crossing the street with his mother. This past March, a jogger was fatally struck down by a driver who fled the scene of an accident in Washington, D.C. early one Saturday morning. And the day after Christmas, a 4-year-old boy was seriously injured in Huntsville, Alabama when a vehicle hit the car the boy was riding in, then fled the scene.
