Car accident = Misdemeanor?
Yesterday, I was involved in my first car accident. I'm 17 years old, from NJ, and I was driving legally with another minor. No one was hurt. I'm pretty sure it's my fault - I did not stop long enough at the stop sign to see another car coming and hit the rear of their car. However, the car was going pretty fast (I was driving at speed limit 25 mph).
There is a question on the common application that asks if you have ever been convicted of a misdemeanor, felony, or other crime. I have not gone to court yet, and I have not been convicted. I have not even seen the police report. But, is this a misdemeanor? Should I write it down anyway?
