For people in Fulton County, heading out on the road has inherent dangers. While accidents can happen at any time, drivers are at least accorded some semblance of protection by being in a vehicle. For those who are pedestrians or on a bicycle, their vulnerability leaves them in danger of serious injury and even death.
Accidents are bad enough, but if the accident involves a driver trying to escape, it's even worse. A hit-and-run accident isn't only dangerous to the lives and health of those involved; the decision to flee the scene is a criminal act. Unfortunately, in some of these accidents, there is a child involved.
