Hit and run driver allegedly responsible for Nevada accident

In Nevada and around the United States, everyone who uses the public roadways agrees to abide by the traffic laws and the rules of the road. For example, while no physical barrier prevents vehicles from crossing a double yellow line, millions of cars pass each other in opposite directions each day without incident as most people respect the idea that the line represents. Likewise, when an accident does occur, it is understood that those involved stop and exchange information, and possibly cooperate with any investigation required by law enforcement. Sometimes, however, people do not respect the traffic laws, creating a problem for themselves and those affected by their actions.
