This SC law says drivers can leave the scene of an accident, but they must do this

THE ISLAND PACKET, 19 JAN. 2018, FEAT. PROF. SUSAN KUO AND KENNETH GAINES:

The driver who struck and killed a Bluffton man Tuesday night stopped briefly, but drove off and called police from her home to report the incident.

She did not return to the scene, and she wasn’t charged for leaving it.

Under S.C. law, Bluffton Police said, she shouldn’t have been.
