I was at a stop sign and was stopped, I was about to go when a Jeep came around a corner off a busy road, and I hit their tire (that's what I was told), and I drove off thinking nothing was wrong. A State Trooper came to my house saying what had happened and told me all that would happen is I would receive a reduced ticket, I got a "failed to yield at a 4 way stop" and that that would be all I would receive. I got a certified letter saying I was going to court for a hit and run. I am terrified about this because I was in trouble a few years ago, I completed a PTI program and have nothing on my record, I am terrified about losing both my jobs over this and ruining my life.
