It is likely that she would be charged with hit and run with property damage if there were no injuries. CA Vehicle Code section 20002 prescribes hit and run punishment causing property damage only.
The punishment is up to 6 months in jail (although not very likely), a fine up to $1,000, and any restitution for damages.
If she has a clean record otherwise, it is likely she would receive probation for the offense along with a midrange fine and the costs of restitution for the damaged vehicle.
