1 This is a review of a decision of the court of appeals that reversed and remanded the circuit courts summary judgment concluding that the motor vehicle insurance policy provided to Wendy and Gary DeHart (the DeHarts) by Wisconsin Mutual Insurance Company (Wisconsin Mutual) did not provide uninsured motorist (UM) coverage for Wendys automobile accident. The court of appeals decided that the physical contact element of a "hit-and-run accident" under Wis. Stat. Â§ 632.32(4)(a)2.b. (2005-06) was met and the statute mandates UM coverage if the unidentified motor vehicle struck another vehicle before forcing Wendys vehicle off the road. DeHart v. Wis. Mut. Ins. Co., 2006 WI App 129, 1, 16, 294 Wis. 2d 387, 719 N.W.2d 518. Since the court of appeals also concluded there was a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the unidentified vehicle actually made physical contact with the other vehicle, it remanded the cause to the circuit court for further proceedings. Id., 17.
