Leaving the Scene of an Accident (Hit and Run)

Unfortunately, it is not unusual for fender benders to result in charges being filed for leaving the scene of an accident without stopping or without providing required information.  The potential penalty in such cases resulting in property damage or personal injury is two months in jail and/or a $500 fine.  If the accident resulted in death the penalty can be five or ten years, depending upon how the State files the charges.
