    Going around would be my first thought but I would look closely at the road to look for disturbances that might be booby traps. I would likely go over them and keep on going.

    They are either already dying or they are trying to kill you.

    I'd have to keep on moving. Too much chance of an ambush.

    Consider the possiblilites:

    1. Trap
    2. Dead person
    3. An innocent who is incapacitated somehow

    Two out of three says get the hell out of there!

    Yep I'd have to get in the wind. I have to figure anyone laying in the road is either dead or it's a trap.

    I would go around if possible, at speed. If I can't go around, try to go back. I'd be afraid of ambush, even if you try to power through. Doesn't sound like a good scenario. I would have a hard time, if it was a kid, to just pass by.

    Hope your shocks can take the bump and you have water where your going to wash off the wheels.

    Speed up.

    I have seen plenty of evil kids in my travels.. It would just be a smaller bump!!

    A person lying alone, nothing else around, no one else visible. Sounds like an ambush to me. If I couldn't turn around then I would speed ahead with my head held low.

    All around great and very interesting and varied answers gentlemen.

    Resist, Ord, I've heard a lot of what you're talking about: just going right through.

    Paul S - Don't feel bad, I've posted this scenario in a couple other groups as well and many have said the same thing; just to run the figure over. Seems to be more prevalent than many people think.

    Slippy - In all honesty, if I were alone, I'd probably cautiously drive closer to the figure while eyeing the surroundings for possible kill zone angles and movement from the foliage/trees. Might poke the figure to see if it's someone in need. No reaction, continue on.

    Now if I were with family, I really don't know...would probably go around since my family is more important than anything, but man would I feel bad later that it might have been someone who needed assistance and I decided not to investigate further, you know?
