Leaving the Scene

Under Illinois Law, there are a number of ways a person can be charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident. The charge depends on the type of accident involved and the penalties can vary widely.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Property Damage is a Class A misdemeanor offense. If you are convicted and the state can prove the damage was over $1,000, the Secretary of State will suspend your driver’s license.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident with no Property Damage is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail or a $2,500 fine.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident involving Death or Personal Injury is a Class 4 felony. However, under certain circumstances, it can be a Class 2 felony (3 – 7 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections) or a Class 1 felony (4-15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections). In addition, the Secretary of State will revoke your driver’s license.
