    Now you know why people flee in hit-and-run wrecks. This guy felt his secret compartment was not going to be found or else his vehicle was incapacitated in the wreck.
    Whether they hit a pedestrian or mow down a buggy, they get out of there, hide the stash and sober up. IF they get caught later, the charges aren’t as bad as DUI or possession.
    If fleeing isn’t a highly punishable felony, it ought to be.
