As the holiday season approaches, many residents in California and elsewhere are making plans to attend work parties, go downtown with their friends or celebrate with family at their homes. You are probably aware of making responsible decisions with alcohol. If you had too much to drink at a get-together, you might have a designated driver or are prepared to call for a ride. However, what if you only had one or two drinks and only feel a little tipsy?

Fatal CA hit-and-run illustrates witnesses’ importance

Roadways are primarily made for motor vehicle traffic, but every day pedestrians walk alongside city streets, only a few feet away from cars and trucks that are driving at fast speeds. Pedestrian accidents are a major cause of injuries and fatalities for people in California and elsewhere. Unfortunately, in cases where the driver left the scene of the crash, some accident victims do not receive justice after being hit.

What should you do immediately after a car accident?

If you are involved in a car accident in California, there are certain things you should do – and not do – immediately afterwards. explains that the most important thing to do is stay at the scene. You could face hit-and-run charges if you leave before it is appropriate to do so, especially if someone was injured or killed.

Wreck kills one, injures three
