A hit and run charge is a serious offense that can be classified as a felony depending on the damage. If the damage is under $1,000, a hit and run offense is usually a misdemeanor. If another party is injured, the damage exceeds $1,000, or if you have a previous hit and run charge, the offense will usually be charged as a felony.

Reasons penalties vary:

  • The damage was insignificant
  • The driver was unaware that he/she struck another vehicle or person
  • Someone other than the owner was driving the vehicle
  • The driver has a clean driving record
