Hit-and-run accidents are an unfortunate reality on California roads. In 2021, there were 433 fatal and injury hit-and-runs in Sacramento County, with another 21 in Alameda County and 134 in Fresno County. In Los Angeles County, there were 3,097 hit-and-run accidents in 2021.

To help combat this issue, California passed the Yellow Alert law in 2022. The statute gives authorities the right to share information about a hit-and-run driver and their vehicle with the public to apprehend these dangerous individuals.

If you or your loved one was involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident, a Yellow alert can help you hold the driver responsible, and in doing so, help you receive compensation.
