Question: Can I be arrested for a hit and run if the other driver was at fault, then left the scene before I did? I waited around for 20 minutes but Cops never showed.

Answer: They may have you on charges for hit & run, but if the other car took off and was the one at fault, then you should fight it. How bad was the accident? What was the property damage? Did the other driver come back to the scene at some point? Also, driving on a suspended license is an issue to. You should contact an attorney to speak about your case in more detail. Call me at 818-336-1384 if you are in the Los Angeles or Ventura County areas.
