If you left the scene of the accident, then you may face criminal charges for fleeing the scene. The penalties may be fairly significant. You should consult a criminal attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation.

You will be charged with misdemeanor hit and run (if only property is damaged) and your license will likely be suspended for an additional year or so (depending on your previous record)

Did you hit the other vehicle? If you did, it is a potential hit and run, which could be a misdemeanor or a felony.

It is a violation of Georgia law to leave the scene of an auto accident without first checking on the safety of the others involved in that collision. It is also a violation of Georgia law to operate an automobile without a valid drivers' license.

Leaving the scene and driving while suspended, both of which are significant violations. Get an attorney and pro-actively seek to deal with these matters. Without a significant amount of additional information is impossible to give you better advice.
