Lucky copper in this video. Just bounced right up after being broadsided by the impact. What do you think the driver could have been successfully charged with?

What do I think the driver could have been charged with? Well, hit and run. He hit the car and then RAN away.

Hmmmm, let’s see.....

Reckless endangerment
Fleeing the scene of an accident
Speeding (I suspect)
Evading arrest
Failure to maintain lane
Failure to obey move-over law
Reckless operation of vehicle

I think littering is a capital-type offense there. Probably get him more punishment than all other driving infractions/fleeing combined. ;-)

It appeared to me that the police car was sticking out in the road.
