It is the law in Wisconsin for those involved in an automobile accident to stop, no matter how small the damage may be. You are required to exchange information with the other driver including your name, address and registration number. If the other driver asks to see your driver’s license, you must comply. If anybody in the other car is injured, you are responsible to get help for him or her. Failing to do these things may constitute a hit and run.
This is the case for a car accident that occurred recently in Hamburg, Wisconsin. The 25-year-old driver who allegedly caused the accident ran away from the scene on foot, leaving his crashed vehicle on someone’s lawn.
