FAIL TO STOP AT THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT CAUSE BODILY HARM S. 252 (1.2)

Where an accused is convicted of Failing to Stop at the Scene of an Accident knowing that bodily harm has been caused to another person, the penalty will be significantly greater than a simple Fail to Stop at the Scene of an Accident charge on its own. Jail is the norm (although not mandatory) in a case involving bodily harm; the more serious the injury, the greater the penalty.
