If there was no accident then I agree that there would be no reason that you should be charged with leaving the scene of an accident. I was assuming that there was some sort of accident in which your were involved only that no other car was involved. If you weren't in an accident then plead not guilty and defend the case on that basis. It is not a violation of law to have a breakdown of equipment and it certainly isn't leaving the scene of an accident.
