Why do South Carolina drivers hit and run?
We know that drivers might flee the scene of an accident for any number of reasons. In some cases, the other driver might be drunk or distracted. In other instances, a driver might be in the process of committing a crime. That's why it's important not to try to go after the hit-and-run driver. Call the police and let them search for the motorist.
You may be concerned about getting compensation if the driver is never found.
