Leaving the scene of an accident causes problems every time.
When Eric Houp, 33, of 332 Tremont Street, Chattanooga, slammed into a vehicle in the Hardee’s parking lot on Aug. 6 he should have stuck around to hash things out. Instead he allegedly chose to leave the scene of the accident.
Upon LaFollette Police Officer Joe Brown’s arrival at the scene the victim informed him that she had obtained the license plate number of the car that had hit her.
After checking the plates, Brown located the owner of the vehicle.
