Yes, I had an accident on private property today in which the driver of the other vehicle became beligerent. After trying to exchange information with the other driver, they refused and call the police. The police did not arrive and the driver was still beligerent and wouldnt share infromation - DL number, insurance, name, etc. I left he scene because the driver wouldnt give me their information and was hurling insults at me. I left and went home. The police arrive at my home and said that that I would recieve a warrant for hit and run. They did not charge with anything yet. It seems that will come later?
What are my options? And how serious is this? I live in Loudoun County VA. The deputy said that it wasnt serious and not worry about it but I just looked at the VA code and it could be serious...maybe even a Class 5 felon7.
