Hit & Run Charges
According to Hawaii Revised Statutes §291C-12, any driver who is in an accident must stop to make sure that no bodily injury or death occurred to the driver or passengers in the other car. Drivers must stay at the scene of the accident, even if they were not the cause. When a car crash happens, some drivers panic and drive away.
