In Rhode Island, a driver who leaves an accident scene that results in injury or death to another person faces felony charges and is subject to punishment by up to five years in prison, a $5,000 fine, or both.
The Rhode Island hit, and run laws require the driver of a vehicle involved in a car crash or other accident that causes property damage, injury, or death must stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident.
The penalties are enhanced if severe injury, death, or drunk driving is suspected. Therefore, if you want to avoid lengthy imprisonment and lose your license, you should have strong and knowledgeable legal help.
