    Answered . I slightly disagree with my esteemed colleagues -- as it may depend on what type of "hit and run" charge you have. If it was a California misdemeanor offense for VC 20001 simple property damage, that is not currently a problem for a lawful permanent resident (I assume you mean you are a conditional resident through marriage?) as it is not considered a "crime of moral turpitude" by the 9th Circuit court of appeals, which is the appeals court which matters for you, since you live in California. A California felony hit and run could be a "crime of moral turpitude" however, and one such offense within 5 years of becoming a permanent resident could make a person deportable.
