Virtually every Connecticut driver is aware that if an auto accident takes place, the proper course of action is to stop and address the matter. In some cases, a simple exchange of insurance information is sufficient. In other instances, rendering emergency first aid is required, as is remaining on the scene until emergency responders and police officers arrive. In a recent hit\-and\-run pedestrian accident, none of those things took place after a driver struck a construction worker.
Looking both ways before crossing the street may not be enough.
