Concluding our blog series Colorado Hit-and-Runs: 6 Facts to Know, here, we’ll wrap up this discussion by highlighting some final important facts that you may need to know about these types of motor vehicle accidents.
Colorado Hit-and-Runs: Here’s What Else You Should Know
Fact 5 – Alcohol is often involved in Colorado hit-and-runs.
A study conducted by researcher Sara Solnick at the University of Vermont found that motorists who cause hit-and-run accidents typically end up fleeing the scene because they feel that they have more to lose if they stay at the scene. Tragically, in many cases, this specifically means that drivers were drunk when they hit someone else with their vehicles and that, in their intoxicated state, they believed that fleeing the scene is a better option than doing the right thing and staying to help victims.
In some cases, alcohol impairment may be coupled with one (or more) of the following factors, which tends to increase the chances that drivers will try to flee after causing accidents:
- The driver doesn’t have a valid driver’s license and/or is underage.
- The driver has a warrant out for his arrest and/or has a prior DUI.
- The driver simply thinks that he can “get away with it” and/or is above the law.
