What is a hit and run accident in Michigan?

A hit and run accident can be a stressful and traumatic experience. The DMV defines a hit and run as, “any accident in which a driver intentionally leaves the scene without providing contact information.” Willingly leaving the scene of an accident, regardless of whether an injured person is a pedestrian or an occupant of a vehicle, is referred to as a hit and run. At any scene of an auto accident, Michigan motorist have the legal obligation to stop and contact the authorities – failure to comply is a serious criminal offense and can result in a six-point misdemeanor, felony traffic violation, as well as a hefty fine. Some examples of hit and runs include:

  • You are crossing the street. A car hits you and then speeds away.
  • While you are driving, another driver hits your vehicle. The other driver leaves the scene of the accident before the police arrive and without providing you with a way to contact him or her.
  • A driver of a car or truck hits your unattended parked car and does not leave a note.
