Hit & Run
Washington law prohibits operators of a motor vehicle from leaving the scene of an accident without first reporting the accident to law enforcement or leaving his or her contact and/or insurance information in a conspicuous place. While some hit and run accidents can be minor and are charged as a misdemeanor, a felony hit and run can be charged if there were serious injuries and/or death that occurred as a result of the accident. There are significant penalties attached to any hit and run charge, including:
- 0-90 days in jail and up to a $1,000 fine for a hit & run involving an unattended vehicle
- Up to 364 days in jail and up to a $5,000 fine for a hit & run involving an attended vehicle
