Each day thousands of people are involved in car accidents. In most cases, all the affected parties will pull over and exchange information. However, from time to time, one of the parties will flee the scene and not take responsibility for the accident.
This action is typically known as a hit-and-run. In most cases, the fleeing driver has committed a crime because most jurisdictions require all parties to exchange information.
If the fleeing driver is charged and convicted, the driver could have his or her license suspended or cancelled. In serious circumstances, the driver could face jail time.
