A Long Beach driver crashed her car and decided to make a break for it....but decided she needed to chat with a local news photographer before hand.
The hit-and-run driver bailed out of her car and told the cameraman:
"I just want to grab this stuff for my son's birthday... I don't want to be on camera."
When the man told her she couldn't leave the scene, she said she'd give him her name but before doing so ran off.
She tried to grab her things, but dropped most of it before jumping over a rail and running across two freeway lanes.
