You need to retain our law firm immediately. You may have left the scene because you felt you were under the influence. You may have left in a panic. However, no matter what the reason you may be guilty of either felony hit and run (CVC20001) (if someone was injured) or misdemeanor and hit and run (CVC20002) if there is only property damage. If someone obtained your license plate this means that it will not be long before law enforcement comes knocking on your door. 

Anything you say to the police can and will be used against you in the case that will likely be filed against you. The law requires you to stop and exchange information with the other driver when you are involved in an accident. IF you leave the scene without doing so you have violated the law. It does not matter who is at fault for the accident.
