South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg reported hitting a deer with his car on Saturday night but actually killed a pedestrian whose body was not found until the next day, state investigators said Monday. Ravnsborg's office has said he immediately called 911 after the accident on a rural stretch of U.S. Highway 14 and did not realize he had hit a man until the body was found.
he claims he didn't know it was a person he hit with his truck because he thought he hit a deer.   ...but c'mon, that is the most battleship excuse i've ever heard.

Even if it was a deer you'd still stop and check. Its illegal here to be in any collision and not stop, is that the case in America too?

I doubt this is a law at the federal level so it would depend on the state.  I know it was illegal in wisconsin.

It's illegal.
It's called a hit and run.
