Read in a different article that the car is actually green but came out blue in the photo. They never heard of color correction, obviously. Why the heck post a picture that isn't accurate?

Looks like Ford's "Brilliant Blue" to me but it may have looked green under the orange colored sodium street lights at night.

I'm sure the driver (or owner) will just claim the car was stolen by joyriders. That's why we need to have stiff penalties for leaving the scene of an accident -- like 10 years mandatory prison term. As it is, drivers have every incentive to flee and leave their victims to die in the road like a dog. If they're never caught, they get away scott-free, and if they are caught, no real additional penalties are given by lenient judges.

Unless it was reported missing prior to the hit and run, the owner don't have much of an excuse.

I don't think the driver has anything to worry about. If a DUI driver caused a fatal accident and gets off with only 60 days in jail and a 2000 fine, all the suv driver has to do is request judge Kubo try the case and he will probably get off with a warning!

Why not just trace address the car is registered to??

Knowing who the car is registered to doesn't prove they were driving it during the accident. See Ryan02's comment above.

And again, this defense is totally inapplicable unless the registered owner filed a missing vehicle report prior to the collision!

really? so if you're shopping at the mall, someone takes your car (maybe you know them, maybe stolen) and bangs someone it's your fault?

As lew5453 pointed out........why bother when judges just release these people 60 days later.
