Leaving The Scene Doesn't Mean You Were Guilty
The temptation and fear were probably overwhelming. You know you were drinking, but weren't sure if you were over the .08 limit. You found yourself in an accident and your only thoughts turned to leaving the scene before the police got there.
25 years of successful Arizona DUI experience
Leaving the scene of an accident is the same as hit and run. It is a class three or class four felony if an injury or death occurred in the crash. Even without serious injury, you have the obligation to stop and wait for the police. You face class six felony charges if you don't.
Yes. You do have rights. Yes. You have someone on your side.
