However, if the accident you fled the scene of resulted in injury to another person, you can again face up to six months in jail and a $2,500 penalty, while fleeing the scene of an accident in which someone is killed can subject you to a potential sentence of imprisonment of up to 9 months in jail and a $10,000 fine.
