Leaving an Accident Scene
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding a collision, leaving the scene of an accident is never a good idea. Even when the accident involves your car and an unattended vehicle, you’re better off following the law. The consequences for leaving the scene are serious.
The stakes are even higher when you’re involved in an accident that injures or kills another driver. Leave the scene without rendering aid, calling law enforcement or otherwise reporting the accident, and you may find yourself spending as much as 15 years in prison.
If you’re involved in a collision, never leave the scene, and call a criminal defense attorney to make certain your rights are protected.
