I hit a person once, but I thought it was a dog. Therefore, I have no legal responsibility to report it to the police.

Isn't the owner of the dog responsible for the damage to the car for letting the dog run loose? last I heard this is not the drivers fault but the owner of the dog.

I think a good followup to this story, would be to find out if the person who reported this has any internal relationship with the police department. Something about this is very strange. Surely the Kendall County police department is aware that the driver is not at fault in this situation, the owner is.

Kendall County cant even keep records up to date. You think they stay up on the laws? All they know how to do is NOTHING. A whole lot of absolutely nothing. SMH And if you hit a person and thought it was a dog your as blind as the assholes that think the driver is wrong here!
