Hit and run (property) is a CRIME, not a traffic ticket, so I'm changing your topic to criminal defense. You should also post your question in the Immigration section! It seems like ICE is arresting people who enter a plea to any crime, so get a good criminal defense lawyer now. These types of crimes can be dismissed, with a good lawyer, through civil compromise. You should not contact the witness (either directly or through third parties) as that could be considered witness tampering. A criminal defense lawyer, on the other hand, can artfully explore civil compromise for you.
