What is a Hit and Run Car Accident?
When a driver is involved in a car accident but then flees the scene of the accident without stopping to exchange information or render aid to anyone who may be injured it is defined as a hit and run car accident. A few states also include hitting an animal as a hit and run car accident. Hit and run car accidents also include collisions in parking lots in most states. For example, if you run into a parked vehicle and fail to leave a note, it may be considered a hit and run car accident.
Consequences of a Hit and Run Car Accident
Fleeing from a car accident can have intense consequences. In most states a fine between $5,000 and $20,000 and incarceration follows a hit and run car accident. Depending on the accident and the injuries involved, some states also consider a hit and run as a felony with up to 15 years in prison.
