As a general rule, if you have a car accident, you must stop and find out if anyone was injured. You should stop even if it just minor car damage and exchange insurance information.
If you hit a car that was parked, then you should leave a note with your name and telephone number.
But regardless of how nervous you are, your current license situation or type of damage, leaving the scene of an accident is a serious crime in Florida. It can result in a misdemeanor or felony and suspended driver’s license.
