Bourne Police have impounded suspected SUV involved in that hit and run. Young female from Plymouth who works at the Mezza Luna who owns that vehicle has paid a visited to BPD with her attorney a few days ago.... refused to answer questions.....returned home.

 

Stay tuned for further deveopments, which I suspect will occur very shortly.

I thought this unfortunate incident might have been resolved by now, but according to todays CCT news it took an unusual turn, in that on Wednesday BPD released said vehicle to its owner.

No coment from the Registry or BPD.

Unless I'm miss reading this, I suspect the authorities determined the vehicle in question was not involved in the hit and run.

No witnesses + no admissions from her = no case.

 

Even if they found human tissue in the damaged area, without someone placing a driver behind the wheel, they can't charge anyone.

 

Even if there are no other fingerprints in the vehicle but hers, it's New Year's Eve--the driver could have been wearing gloves.

And yet if the vehicle in question had run a red light camera there's no legal problem issuing the registered owner a citation. shakehead.gif

I know the stakes are much higher with the hit and run, but I would think if they could prove the vehicle was definitely the one involved in the crash they could come up with something to charge her with. headscratch.gif

Now that is really interesting. headscratch.gif

It seem to me this must happen quite frequently, no? That is, someone hitting something or someone, no witness around or a witness who can't identity the driver, the driver goes homes and later lawyers up. Problem is I've never heard of such a thing.

How do the police approach these cases? Wait it out till the guilty finally confesses 'cause they can't sleep at night?

The police must have a plan to solve this case wouldn't you think?

I would be willing to bet that the investigation continues...I would even venture that the family of the victim may even hire themselves a private investigator to look into this if they feel that the police are not pursuing the matter as diligently as they possibly could be...just a guess though.

That's because running a red light is a civil infraction, not a criminal offense. Absent proof that she was driving the vehicle, they can't charge her with a blessed thing--not even operating unregistered and uninsured.

I would guess that the plan is to hope a witness shows up who can ID who was behind the wheel, because unless one does, they don't have a case.

If that's true, the only reason that happened is because the driver left the kid for dead . You leave someone for dead that's murder in my mind .. no ?

From what I understand (but hoping ditch or someone could clarify), this is because the perpetrator created the conditions for the death to occur????
