Supreme Court Discusses Hit-And-Run

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is debating the precise definition of a hit-and-run after an accident with a young boy. The 13-year-old was riding his bike when a vehicle hit him. The motorist stopped to check on him, but he assured them he was fine, so the vehicle drove away.

Shortly after the accident, the boy discovered he actually did have some injuries from the accident. He had two fractures, one requiring two surgeries. The Supreme Court is considering the meaning of “run,” which has been defined as “flee” in other cases. In that sense, the motorist did not “flee,” but drove away only after making sure the boy was not injured.
