criminal charges after a collision

Some charges that can apply after a motor vehicle accident include:

LEAVING THE SCENE (HIT AND RUN)

In Arizona, if you are involved in an accident, you are legally obligated to stay at the scene and provide the following:
  1. Your name, address, and registration
  2. Your driver’s license
  3. If there is an injury, you are required to render reasonable assistance.
Failure to provide information (ARS 28-663) can lead to a class 3 misdemeanor and failure to render aid can result in a class 6 felony and a potential prison sentence.
Deserting an accident is commonly referred to as “hit and run,” but is legally considered leaving the scene (ARS 28-663). If you vacate the scene of an accident without fulfilling the requirements above, you can be charged with leaving the scene, even if you were not the cause of the accident.

UNLAWFUL FLIGHT

You can be charged with unlawful flight (ARS 28-622.01) any time you fail to stop after an officer flashes red and blue lights or otherwise signals you to stop. This is a felony offense.

If you are later involved in an accident that results in an injury or death, you may face additional charges.

If you are later involved in an accident that results in an injury or death, you may face additional charges.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT

If you caused an accident that resulted in an injury, you could be charged with aggravated assault under ARS 13-1204. This is because a car is considered a dangerous instrument in Arizona. In order for an assault charge to apply, the prosecution must demonstrate that you intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly caused the accident, ARS 13-1203. A driving under the influence (DUI) case is one example of when the prosecution may make this argument.
