There was a hit and run homicide in Ft. Myers yesterday and the police are seeking information on the driver and the vehicle.
The collision involved a white truck and a motorcycle. Many hit and run accidents involve cars and either pedestrians, bicycles or motorcycles. It may not have been the drivers fault but leaving the scene can subject him or her to State prison.
Many times people simply panic.
The police are seeking information about the white truck with driver’s side damage and a missing mirror. For the police, identifying the driver, not the owner is the key to an arrest. The vehicle was seen headed in the direction of Cape Coral. Often they need a confession or an admission to put someone behind the wheel at the time of the arrest. It is critical that anyone involved, whether it be the owner or the drivers to have legal representation.
If a person is under investigation and the police come to question them about a hit and run, unless the person is in custody, they may not be advised of their right to remain silent or their right to an attorney.
