Police Identify Victim of Hit-and-Run Crash in Crasmerton, North Carolina

April 06, 2020

CRASMERTON, NC- writes that police arrested two women in connection to a hit-and-run crash in Cramerton. The incident took place in the afternoon this week when the suspects were stealing a car.*

Police found the victim in the road near a residential home. The woman was identified as a 44-year-old who lives on the street where the crash took place. County officers blocked the roadway. The suspects fled in two vehicles and were later identified as a 32-year-old from Lowell and a 38-year-old from Stanley. Both are being held in Gaston County. 

The AAA carried out a report regarding hit-and-run crashes. As a part of their study, the organization looked at the factors that motivate a driver to leave the scene after a collision. Obviously, the AAA states that the motivation of the fleeing driver is often to avoid going to jail. In many cases, drivers who commit hit-and-runs are drunk. The study writes that motorists who have been drinking want to leave in order to avoid drunk driving charges, but that they also likely experience a lack of inhibitions that will make them more likely to take the risk of leaving the scene. 

The number of deadly hit-and-run crashes has continued to increase over recent years. In many states, the method used to try to combat this crime is to punish the drivers. However, the AAA's study found that even with harsher penalties, states struggle to deter motorists from leaving the scene of a crash. In fact, states with prison terms of up to 25 years for a hit-and-run crash have rates of fleeing drivers that are about equal to states with a maximum sentence of five years.
