Hit-And-Run Definition Debated

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is discussing whether a hit-and-run occurs if the driver stops to check on the victim but leaves no identifying information. The case was brought up after a car struck a 13-year-old boy riding his bicycle. The motorist stopped to check on him, but the boy said he was fine, so the vehicle drove away.

Shortly after the accident, though, the boy discovered he actually was injured with two fractures, one of them requiring two surgeries. The Supreme Court is debating whether a “run” occurred, since the vehicle technically didn’t flee. It drove away only after the boy had assured them he was fine.
