If you fail to report an accident in the state of Georgia you can be charged with hit-and-run. It makes no difference whether the vehicle or object hit was occupied, observed or not. The simple act of hitting a guard rail is an accident. It should be reported to the authorities. Whether or not you will be charged depends upon the circumstances.

Failure to report an accident can result in significant criminal charges against you.

The law requires that you stop your vehicle look for the owner of the property damaged,
and if you are unable to find said owner, you are required to leave identifying information and contact information for the owner. Anything less is considered a hit and run, leaving the scene of an accident.
