Criminal – Leaving Accident Scene – Victim’s Injury

Where a woman got out of her car and walked back to ask defendant if he was OK after he rear-ended her car with his pickup truck, and her vehicle suffered only $400 in damages, there was insufficient evidence that defendant was aware of any personal injury to the woman, and his conviction of felony leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury is reversed by the Court of Appeals.
