Definition of “Hit and Run” under California Criminal Laws
If you leave the scene of an accident, even if you did not cause the accident, you may be charged with a misdemeanor violation of Vehicle Code Section 20002. If a person or animal was injured, or property was damaged, the state may charge you with a felony violation of Vehicle Code Section 20001. Also, whether the hit and run case is prosecuted by the state as a misdemeanor or felony offense depends of how serious were the injuries and on whether previous similar convictions exist. Further, if you leave the scene of an accident and a person dies, you may be charged with vehicular homicide, manslaughter, or even murder.
Penalties for Hit and Run Crimes
The consequences of a misdemeanor or felony Hit and Run conviction, leaving the scene of an accident, may be severe:
- Imprisonment in Prison or County Jail
- Large fines
- Restitution for Repair
- Community service
- Probation or Parole
- License Suspension
