What happens if you are arrested for hit and run in South Carolina?

A hit and run, or leaving the scene charge, is a serious criminal charge that also has certain effects on your driving record. This article reviews the common offenses and offers suggestions as they can possibly be resolved.

A hit and run charge is made when a police officer believes that a driver has struck an object, vehicle, or person, and then failed to stop, identify themselves, and if necessary help. The exact charge depends on exactly what the police think happened, and whether they think that anyone got hurt in the process.
