    Driver, turn yourself in. You’d be surprised how forgiving victims, authorities, and people in general are when some true remorse is shown. Everyone understands panicking and how the “fight or flight” can make some people react differently than they normally would. Prove to yourself and those around you that you have what it takes to earn their respect. You really don’t want this on your conscience.
