Miley Cyrus, a Hit-and-Run Driver?

Recently, Miley Cyrus has become the subject of some reports that alleges that she was a hit –and-run driver.

According to the reports, the former Disney star was driving a Mercedes SUV in Los Angeles last week when she struck a parked Camry, which was owned by a restaurant parking attendant.

Through his attorney Mario Fiore, the parking attendant alleged that Cyrus sped off and left him to deal with the damage to his car.

However, Fiore admitted that the Hannah Montana star left her phone number to his client before she left.

So is it a case of a hit-and-run car accident or not?

Well, the charges of hit-and-run will probably not stick just by the fact that Cyrus left her contact information to the parking attendant.

Although the state asks parties involved in a car collision to give more than just their phone number, the action of Cyrus after the car accident can no longer be considered a hit-and-run.

What the parking attendant should do is pursue his property damage claim instead of trying to show that the pop star is an irresponsible celebrity.

In fact, he has a strong claim against Cyrus and it looks like a straightforward case to me; unless he is parked illegally then that could affect his case.

But from the available information, there should not be any major debacle that will prevent his claim from being approved.

I think it’s time that he and his attorney focus on his civil case and let the police and the DAs office decide if Cyrus is going to be charged criminally or not.
