WTF is all this running away from an accident all about, leaving the scene of an accident.
Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 170(4)......Maximum sentence of six months' imprisonment and/or a fine.

Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 1..(Causing death)....Maximum sentence of 14 years' imprisonment.

That is UK so don't expect anything like that here, but ffs it's ridiculous, they all run away if they ain't broken both their legs, what do the police and courts do when they find the driver ???
