Yes, it’s possible but it’s just a judgment call for the police. The charge itself won’t be admissible in your civil car accident case, only guilty pleas are generally.

answered on Jan 14, 2022
Most likely you will have to pay off the lien from your insurance proceeds before you can obtain a salvage title. I doubt the lienholder would agree otherwise but you can ask them if they will do so.
