Ind. Law - "Indiana drunken driving law creates 'incentive to flee'"
Of course, you'd need to know the law first.
Kristine Guerra of the Indianapolis Star now has a very lengthy story online, possibly written for the Sunday Star. From the beginning of the story:
In Indiana, a drunken driver who kills someone, stays at the scene and calls 911 — as required by law — faces a B felony charge or up to 20 years in prison if his or her blood alcohol content is 0.15 percent or higher. But if that same driver flees the scene and is caught, say, after 24 hours, when an alcohol test is futile, he or she faces a lower C felony charge carrying up to 8 years in prison.
