Anybody want to place any bets on no driver's license and no insurance on the vehicle? Could very well be an Habitual Offender or illegal in country, they do performances like this very often in their travels. People would be surprised how many cars are on the road without insurance nowadays.

Praying for this victim and his family. If we knew what kind of vehicle this was maybe someone would know who this irresponsible uncaring individual is and help find them.

Between 20 and 25% of cars on the road are uninsured. Thats almost scary knowing that 1 in 5 cars you see are driven by dolts.

Can we get a description of the car and the name of the person it was registered to so we can find him?

The car was still at the crash scene, so you having a description of the car wouldn't help YOU find the driver. It's the VSP's job to process the car and question the owner. There are thousands of gold Nissan Altimas out there and the car might not have been driven by the registered owner. Police don't give out the name of registered owners of a car so the public can help find her/him. This was not part of a reality TV show.

So if I know who the driver is by either his name or picture of the vehicle, I shouldn't contact the VSP?

They do not know the driver's name. The registered owner is not always the driver. The police cannot release the name of the owner of the car if they don't know for a fact that the owner was the driver that fled the scene. It is not a crime to let someone else drive your car.

Now that you have seen a picture of the car, have you called the VSP to tell them who was driving? If you can tell who was driving a car that commits a hit-and-run just from looking at the picture, then you should be an accident investigator. Unless you actually saw the person who fled the scene, then you can't say who was behind the wheel.
