No contact needed to leave the scene of an accident

[12:02 p.m., 11/25/2015]  This morning in State v. Sene, the Appellate Division ruled that both the motor vehicle and criminal ‘leaving the scene of an accident’ statutes do not require any actual contact between the defendant driver and the accident victim. Simply put, a person can be involved in an accident without striking anyone or anything.
