I was making a left turn and didn't see the car coming towards me. The other car hit my right side. The driver was very angry and distraught. I apologized profusely and held her in my arms to console her. We made sure that her passenger was ok. When I saw the neighbors staring, I got spooked and just snuck away.
I left my car there so I knew that they had my info. Anyways, I stayed up all night and decided to call and turn my self in in the morning. The police came and took my statement. They were skeptical that I ran just because I was scared. Asked if I was drinking. I wasn't. Investigation is ongoing. Should I hire an attorney? I'm afraid that I'll get locked up for a childish mistake that I'm sure only accounted to property damage. Now I'm a criminal.
