Every state has laws making it illegal for a driver involved in a crash to flee the scene. If a driver is involved in a crash, AAA suggests assisting the victim, staying visible to other drivers and to file a police report.
Dr. David Yang, executive director of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, says these crashes are a growing traffic safety challenge.
“Hit-and-run crashes in the United States are trending in the wrong direction,” Yang said.
New data shows that the deadliest intersection in Wisconsin is at 35th and Capitol in Milwaukee morning. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety, 104 accidents with injuries were reported at that location from 2010 to 2015.
