What are the Penalties for a Hit & Run in California?

The penalties for a hit and run in California depend on the severity of the incident. If the incident resulted in death or severe injury, the driver faces up to four years in state prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Suppose property damage occurred, and the driver left without providing information. In that case, they may face misdemeanor charges which carry potential jail time of up to six months and/or a maximum fine of $1,000.

If the driver is found to be driving under the influence during the incident, they may also face additional penalties. These include a high fine of up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment for one to three years. Additionally, any hit-and-run incident may result in license suspension for a specific period.
