Sorry to hear about your friend, I hope she has a good and speedy recovery. Recently a homeless man was struck while crossing the street (jaywalking)
a short distance from my place- driver kept going. Then while laying in the street injured, he was struck again and killed- driver kept going. It
happened on a Friday night, so there is a good chance the drivers were intoxicated on weed, alcohol, opiates, meth, or a combination of them. People
don't want to get into trouble and don't want the hassle.
Last month my new car was struck by a tractor trailer 3 weeks after I bought it, and the driver didn't even bother to leave contact info.
Fortunately, there were multiple witnesses and I was able to track down the company that the driver works for and should get compensation. I guess
what I'm saying is that if drivers won't stop if they damage a car, why would they stop if they damage a human?
Myself, if I accidentally struck someone on a motorcycle, I would feel awful no matter who was at fault. And, yes, I would stop. The consequences
would be far more severe to get caught after having left the scene, and, it's just the right thing to do.
