Leaving the Scene of Crash Involving Death - Actual Knowledge Not Required, Maybe

Recently an appellate court addressed a criminal traffic case of leaving the scene of a crash involving death, commonly referred to as a hit and run or LSA for leaving the scene of an accident.  The issue was whether at a trial, the jury should be instructed that the driver had to have actual knowledge of the crash or whether the accused knew or should have known about the crash.  There is a big difference between actually knowing and that you should have known.
