Investigators are most likely certain of liability as the majority of the coming days will likely be focused on locating the suspect. Once the hit-and-run driver is found, they will potentially be facing serious felony charges for leaving the scene of an accident. As a result of the suspects’ negligence, it is highly probable that a serious personal injury lawsuit will follow.
