My steering wheel seized up and I veered of the road and went into the bushes in side of road and hit s telephone pole. Someone called the police for me but I was in such shock and was having a panic attack and called a friend and left the scene. What kind of trouble will I be in
Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime. You should get a lawyer and clear this up ASAP, before they come looking for you. see RCW 46.52.020

I agree with counsel. This is still a criminal charge. That telephone pole is the property of either a company or a municipality, and you would be liable for any damage caused to it. Get a lawyer ASAP, and don’t post any more details online!
