CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT

DIGEST FOR EHB 1052



Citations Affected: IC 9-13-2-49.7; IC 9-24-10-4; IC 9-26-1; IC 9-30-5; IC 34-30-12-1; IC 35-38-1-7.1; IC 35-50-1-2.

Synopsis: Motorist duties at an accident, operating while intoxicated, and sentencing. Conference committee report for EHB 1052. Requires an examination for a learner's permit to test the applicant's knowledge of the duty to stop and provide assistance. Provides that the law requiring a driver involved in an accident to stop at the accident scene, notify the appropriate law enforcement agency, and render reasonable assistance applies if the accident results in the entrapment of a person in a vehicle. (Under current law, the law applies only if the accident results in the injury or death of a person.) Provides that if the driver is physically incapable of notifying the appropriate law enforcement agency or rendering reasonable assistance, the duty to notify or to render reasonable assistance is imposed on a passenger in the driver's vehicle who is capable of discharging the duty if the passenger is: (1) at least 15 years of age and holds a learner's permit or driver's license; or (2) at least 18 years of age. Provides that a passenger commits a Class C misdemeanor if the passenger fails to notify or to render reasonable assistance when the duty is imposed upon the passenger. Provides that a person who knowingly, intentionally, or recklessly violates the law requiring a driver or a passenger to take certain actions at the scene of an accident commits a Class C misdemeanor, and provides that a passenger is immune from civil liability for providing emergency care. Specifies that felony resisting law enforcement and operating while intoxicated (OWI) causing serious bodily injury are crimes of violence. Makes OWI committed by a person with a previous conviction for OWI causing death, serious bodily injury, or with a minor in the vehicle a Class C felony. Permits a court to require a license suspension imposed as the result of a conviction for operating while intoxicated to be imposed before or after, or both before and after, any period of incarceration. Makes leaving the scene of an accident after committing operating while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury a Class B felony, and makes committing an offense against a person with a disability an aggravating circumstance for sentencing purposes if the defendant knew or should have known that the victim was a person with a disability. (This conference committee report: Removes the Class A felony enhancement for: (1) operating while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content greater than .15% causing death; and (2) leaving the scene of an accident after committing operating while intoxicated causing death. Specifies that a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident is criminally liable for failing to render aid only if the passenger knew that the driver was incapable of rendering aid, and provides that the

passenger is immune from civil liability for providing aid. Makes committing an offense against a person with a disability an aggravating circumstance for sentencing purposes if the defendant knew or should have known that the victim was a person with a disability. Removes a provision making OWI causing serious bodily injury a Class C felony and OWI causing serious bodily injury committed by a person with a previous conviction for OWI a Class B felony. Makes OWI committed by a person with a previous conviction for OWI with a minor in the vehicle a Class C felony.)
