Serious Penalties for Leaving the Scene and DWI

A driver under the influence may leave the scene of an accident for fear of the consequences. However, the consequences can be compounded by leaving the scene. Most DWI cases are treated as misdemeanors, even when an accident is involved, unless the accident results in serious bodily injury or death. When leaving the scene is added to DWI, the situation becomes much more serious. Hit and run penalties increase in proportion to the damage caused in the accident.
