Hit-And-Run Accident Hazards in Fremont

Drivers are charged with felony hit-and-run when a victim is injured or killed in the accident. Of course, in so many cases, the driver escapes identification and is never caught or charged.

Over the past five years, Fremont has averaged around 45 hit-and-runs involving a felony a year. It’s a thoughtless choice that puts lives at risk and leaves victims to pay the consequences.
