How Do Police Identify Hit-And-Run Perpetrators?

Police departments use the full breadth of their resources to identify a perpetrator in a hit-and-run accident. It is important to note that simply leaving the scene of an accident can qualify as a hit and run. Hopefully, there is at least one eyewitness present at the scene of the accident to provide details about the perpetrator’s vehicle. Police will then use that information to scour the local area for the vehicle. According to Denver Channel 2, the Denver Police Department is now using Twitter to alert the local community about hit-and-run accidents.

Using social media to alert the community about hit-and-run accidents increases the likelihood of the perpetrator being identified and includes the public in the investigative process. An accident happened at approximately 5 a.m. on Saturday, March 1 involving a hit and run. According to police reports, a black car driving north on Colorado Boulevard struck a motorcyclist, launching the driver from his bike. The motorcyclist had to be taken to a hospital for treatment. The motorist continued driving for a few blocks with the motorcycle stuck to his car before fleeing on foot.
