HB 1252 -- Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Sponsor:  Marble

This bill creates the crime of leaving the scene where a serious
physical injury or death has occurred due to an accident or
negligence of that person without identifying himself or herself
to the nearest law enforcement officer, medical personnel, or
police station.  It is not a crime for the person to leave the
scene of the incident to obtain medial assistance, to contact
law enforcement authorities, or when the victim requests that no
assistance be given.  Leaving the scene of a serious physical
injury is a class A misdemeanor, except that it is a class D
felony if the person has pled to or been found guilty of a prior
leaving the scene violation.

The bill also authorizes certified peace officers and reserve
peace officers to investigate and make arrest for persons
leaving the scene after causing serious physical injury or
death.  In addition, the Conservation Commission is authorized
to make similar investigations and arrests involving hunting
accidents as defined by the bill.
