Approximately 11% of all accidents that take place on California roadways involve a driver leaving the scene. Annually, the state loses around 1500 people to fatal hit and run accidents.

Once you decide to flee the scene of an accident you can rest assured that you will now be facing criminal charges when you are caught. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and whether or not anyone was injured or killed will determine if you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony hit and run charge.
