How Could a Witness Leave the Scene of an Accident? There May Be a Few Reasons.
Being in an Austin car or truck accident can be absolutely terrifying, and the minutes following are usually confusing. Although you were the one physically involved in the accident, it always helps to have witnesses on hand who can provide their unbiased point of view as to what really happened.

So what do you do when they leave the scene of the accident before you can talk to them? Why would they leave?
