    Answered . The charges will be the same as one not an illegal immigrant. For example, if a forged license is used, there would be several crimes involved, at least one a felony. If there was reckless driving, then that charge could be raised. Typically, if it is just a typical accident, there are no criminal charges. Your concern would be what could happen if someone reports that the driver is illegal. In that instance, ICE could become involved.
