In order to convict someone of leaving the scene of an accident causing property damage, the Commonwealth must prove four things beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the defendant operated a motor vehicle;
- That while the defendant was operating the vehicle, he/she caused damage to another vehicle or property either by colliding with it or in some other way;
- That the defendant knew he/she (had collided with another’s property) or (had in some way caused damage to another’s property); and
- That after causing such damage, the defendant did not stop and make known his/her name, home address, and the registration number of his/her motor vehicle
