Attorney Bobby Raitt tells Fox 2 what to do at crash scene if you fear for your safety

June 20, 2014 by Steven M. Gursten

A hit and run car accident is a crime in Michigan. But what if you fear for your safety if you remain at the crash scene?

This question was raised after another incident in Detroit that left Nathaniel Szczerbinski, 34, of Grosse Pointe Park, beaten and hospitalized – after he tried to do the right thing by getting out of the car to check on the other driver.

Monica Gayle of Fox 2 News interviews Michigan Auto Law attorney Bobby Raitt on the law surrounding this issue:

// Said Bobby:

“The law is that you have to remain at the scene of an accident. There is an exception, however, if you have a reasonable believe that more harm will take place if you do remain. And then the law tells you that you have to contact the police, either by going to the nearest police station or by calling 911 and contacting them with all of the information you have relative to that accident.”
