Both the Houston police department and Harris County Sheriff Department maintain a hit and run detail because so many Houston, Texas auto accidents involve drivers who flee the scene before an investigation can occur.

There are many reasons why drivers do not stop at car accident sites.  At times, a driver can feel unsafe and not want to get out of their vehicle.  Some drivers do not want to be considered intoxicated.  Some drivers even maintain that they remained unaware that their vehicle made contact with another vehicle.
