Hit and Run Crime

In the state of California, it is considered to be a criminal offense to leave the scene of a DUI accident if you were involved. A person may flee the scene out of a reaction or for other reasons, but this action can lead to even further repercussions during an already difficult situation. In an accident it is necessary to stop and provide identifying information.

After an Accident

According to California Vehicle Code §20002(2010), should a driver be involved in an accident that resulted in property damage, it is the legal responsibility of the driver to immediately stop at the closest location. After stopping, the driver will need to notify the owner of the property which was damaged, exchange information or leaving a visible note with the proper information. If the accident resulted in injury, as defined by §20003, it is their responsibility to provide their name, address and the registration number of the vehicle. It is also their legal responsibility to assist the injured in a reasonable manner, including providing them with transportation for medical treatment. Failing to do so is a criminal offense that is considered either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the extent of the damage.

When charged with leaving the scene of the accident concurrently with a DUI charge, it is vastly important that immediate steps are taken to get the representation of a knowledgeable attorney that you can trust. These are complex cases and without the proper amount of assistance, you can easily find that you are left struggling between a rock and a hard place.
