Legal Question

Asked on: 7/21/11, 8:00 am

Recently I hit a bicyclist while driving my Van. He was traveling the wrong way on a oneway street, I was turning onto the oneway street and didn't see him until it was too late. There were 2 witnesses to the accident and we all asked him if he needed medical treatment and he refused. He then begged us not to call the police because he is on probation for public intoxication. The police were called by one of the witnesses and he immediately left the scene before the police got there. Both witnesses were familiar with him so they gave the officer his name, the officer was also familiar with him. One witness said she saw him swerving in the road before I hit him, and the other witness who happened to be a retired firefighter thought he smelled alcohol on him. I didnít get ticketed for any traffic violations. A few days later he did call the police station and requested my information. Is it possible for him to sue me, and if so how much trouble can I get in for this? Itís been almost a month and I havenít heard from him yet. Thanks
