Traffic Lawyer: CriminalDefense, Attorney replied 2 years ago
So he is claiming you actual hit him with your car? Or did you hit his car? If so, did he confront you then and you just left? Did he say he was calling the police?

This was a pedestrian on this walkway.When I stopped the car at the walkway he was not in the path of the front area of the car but made a leaping motion backward.He then proceeded to the middle of the front of the car and started texting his phone
he appeared to emotionally shaken and I said are your alright?He did not say he was calling the police.
Traffic Lawyer: CriminalDefense, Attorney replied 2 years ago
Thank you for the additional information. It is possible that he almost got hit and was shaken up but that you did not strike him with your car. Moreover, if you spoke with him and he was alright and did not need to call 911 or the police, then there was no obligation to stay. Had you hit him or he claimed to be hit and in need of help, then there would have been an obligation to stay and render aid and call the police or 911. However, you shared that you did not hit him, he never said he was hit or injured, so it is odd why you are being charged. Now, he may have told the police something different, which is the reason for this, so your attorney is going to need to make a demand for discovery and read the report and what he claims to have happened. You can then defend it. He may also be trying to commit fraud here and get money, so the extent of his damages and injuries need to be known and if they are a result of getting struck by a car.
