NASHVILLE (AP) - A proposal that would make it a crime to leave the scene of a boating accident is moving forward in the Tenn. Legislature.

The measure sponsored by Sen. Steve Roller, D-McMinnville, unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Under current state law, a boat operator involved in an accident is required to render assistance to those affected by the accident and provide personal information, such as name and address.

The proposed legislation would make it a criminal offense for the operator not to do those things.

The companion to the bill has been in a House committee since last month.
