Leaving the Scene
Leaving the Scene of a Crime, Accident, or Hit-and-Run
Leaving the scene of a crime or traffic accident has very serious consequences in the state of Illinois. Any motor vehicle accident which results in the damage of property, causes injuries to others, or results in the death of another must be reported to the authorities as soon as it is safe for you to do so. Failure to do so will result in, at minimum, a traffic ticket, or in more serious cases, a charge of “hit and run”, which is a serious criminal charge.
If you have been charged with leaving the scene after a motor vehicle accident, it is in your best interests to consult with a qualified criminal attorney. David B. Franks, a former McHenry County and Cook County prosecutor, will evaluate your case, act quickly and aggressively to protect your rights, and present you with the best defense options. Call David B.
