The maximum sentence for a hit and run where there is property damage but no injury to people is a fine of $500 and maximum of 6 months in jail. For a first offense, if there is no evidence of drug or alcohol use, jail time would usually be waived as long as the driver makes restitution for any damages. You can read the full statute here:
