Here's how I see it. One of my properties was recently struck by a vehicle and the person immediately took off. To me, that's a "Hit & Run". Someone side swipes a vehicle and continues to drive away, that's a "Hit & Run.
HOWEVER, only in Salisbury Maryland can you hit a human being, kill them and take off and they call it a "Hit & Run".
NO! It's called MURDER or (involuntary?) MANSLAUGHTER.
What's your thoughts?
