Hit & Run DUI
California has two types of hit and run DUI offenses: misdemeanor and felony.
According to Vehicle Code 20002, you may be charged with California misdemeanor hit and run in Chico if you leave the scene of an accident without first identifying yourself to the other parties involved, and if there was property damaged in the accident. If the hit and run is also a DUI hit and run in Chico, the stakes are much higher.
A misdemeanor hit and run in Chico is concerned with property damage, but once the DUI charge is added to the hit and run, you now have to deal with DUI laws. If there is bodily injury or death, the hit and run DUI becomes incredibly serious and may be charged with a felony.
The best thing to do if you’re involved with a hit and run DUI in Chico is to contact an experienced, and local, hit and run DUI Chico attorney immediately.
Your punishment depends greatly on whether anyone was injured or killed during the accident. Because hit and run DUI cases in Chico receive many different violations depending upon the circumstances, there is no one-size fits-all punishment for a hit and run DUI.
