I went to bed when you no longer stayed online.

I have already discuss all of this with your fiancee and I assume he told you what I was saying.

You are required by law to report this to the police and to ICBC. But you did not commit any crime and will not be arrested or jailed.

The accident is not a terrible thing as no one else was involved. The worst part is your reaction when you fled the scene, and hid out. That made your situation worse.

But this still it not that serious and you should just speak to a lawyer as I suggested and then the police and ICBC.

I am a lawyer in Canada.
