Hit-and-Run

Charges of a hit-and-run are serious as you are subject to up to a year in jail, a $5,000 fine and license suspension in addition to higher insurance rates.

This is a crime that involves hitting a vehicle where there is either a drier or an occupant who is not injured and then leaving the scene. If you are a driver involved in an accident with an occupied vehicle, you must stop and provide your name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number, and driver's license. If you leave the scene without providing this information and are later found, a charge of hit-and-run 'attended' will almost certainly be filed. The state has two years from the date of the incident to file charges.

The state must prove you are aware of the accident. It is not necessary that you know or were aware that the other vehicle was occupied, even though this fact is what elevates the charge from a misdemeanor to a gross misdemeanor. If convicted, your license will be revoked for a period of at least one year.

Washington law requires that a person who has been involved in an accident that damages property to stop and provide his or her name, address, license, and insurance information. Hit-and-run unattended is a simple misdemeanor.

Your drivers license is not revoked upon conviction for hit-and-run unattended.
