Fly-by-night driver flees pedestrian accident in British Columbia

Our literature is full of dastardly deeds that take place under cover of darkness. The nighttime has been mythologized as a frightening and even perilous time. Some people, such as one hit-and-run driver in British Columbia, seem to believe that their decisions as well as their actions are rendered invisible at night, especially when they flee the scene of a pedestrian accident.

Pedestrian accident disturbs spirit of place in British Columbia

Ancient beliefs in the "genius loci," or spirit of place, describe locations imbued with intense energy or are, as some say, the abode of great bear spirits or even of fairies.

In a recent car accident, one driver, who apparently didn't know when to quit, left one crash scene only to cause a second collision further on.
