In New York, it depends on how serious the injuries are. An injury that poses a significant risk of death, long-term disability or disfiguration can give rise to a felony charge. Otherwise, it's a misdemeanor.

    Hit and Run of an Attended Vehicle (Failure to Remain at the Scene of an Accident with an Attended Vehicle) if no injuries or VERY, VERY minor injuries, if you are lucky and have a clean record. Most likely, the charges will be the former plus the felony of Vehicular Assault.
