After fleeing the scene of the May 14th NYC accident, apparently dragging the bicycle underneath his car several blocks further, even through two red lights, anchor Jack Cafferty claimed "I was unaware I was in an accident", according to the Atlanta Constitution-Journal. Cafferty received only a $250 fine and requirement to perform community service; Cafferty apparently also paid "restitution"--the cyclist needs surgery on his elbow.
The Atlanta paper further explained, "Cafferty was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, assault and harassment. He was allowed to plead guilty to a traffic violation."
