Our client is under the age of 18, having only had a driver’s license for about a year. She was involved in a car accident and after briefly speaking with the driver of the other vehicle, she panicked at hearing the police were on their way and left the scene. After police tracked her down to her home, she was given a criminal violation for Leaving the Scene of an Accident without Giving Information. Our client’s insurance company settled the claim with the driver of the other vehicle. Additionally our client agreed to take a 4 hour basic driver’s improvement class and in exchange, the State agreed to drop the criminal charge.
