In the state of Washington, the justice system takes a very serious stance against drivers accused of hit and run. If you are charged with leaving the scene of an accident that you are involved in without leaving the necessary information such as contact information and insurance information, you may be charged with hit and run even if you did not cause the accident. If you are charged with hit and run involving an unattended vehicle you could be facing up to 90 days in jail, $1,000 in fines, license suspension and restitution if convicted for leaving the scene without leaving the proper information.
If you have been involved in an accident with an attended vehicle and leave the scene without providing the required information, you may be facing a gross misdemeanor with penalties of up to 365 days in jail, $5,000 in fines, mandatory 1 year suspension of license and restitution to the victim. Any resulting injury can increase the charge to a felony hit and run, thereby increasing the penalties if convicted.
