Car Accidents in North Carolina
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, there were approximately 56 recorded hit-and-run crashes throughout the state of North Carolina in 2017 alone. These accidents have been happening more and more frequently as drivers flee the scene of accidents within the state. These collisions are incredibly dangerous because there could be an extensive delay in a victim receiving medical care if the driver flees without stopping.
