Please go get help in this as soon as you can.  By that I mean go and speak with an attorney to help you rectify the matter. Leaving the scene of an accident is not only a crime but it can have an impact on your insurance coverage in this situation. Listen, people get scared aqnd do funny things.  A lawyer can help explain that.  Don't let it define you here.  Good luck.
