FAIL TO STOP AT THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT CAUSE DEATH S. 252 (1.3)

In a case involving a death to another person where the accused knows of the death, or where the accused knows that bodily harm has been caused and is reckless as to whether the death of the other person results from that bodily harm and the death of that person so results, the penalty increases substantially. There are no cases in Canada where jail has not been imposed after a conviction for this charge.
