Leaving Scene of Accident Archives

New law on Leaving Scene of an Accident means tougher sentence

Being involved in a car accident is a scary experience. It doesn't matter if it is something as simple as a fender-bender. But just because it's a frightening ordeal doesn't mean you can leave the scene of an accident. Especially if there is a serious injury involved!  A new law in Florida is harshly punishing drivers who leave the scene of an accident, involving a death. What once carried a minimum mandatory of 21 months in prison, now carries a minimum mandatory of 4 years in prison. And because it is a first degree felony, it now carries a 30 year maximum sentence.
