2. It's similar to a hit and run, but it looks like bodily injury is also involved.

Here is the definition I found:

In Ohio, leaving the scene of a car accident or failure to stop after an accident (called a “hit skip”) is a serious criminal offense with serious potential penalties. A hit and run in Ohio is usually a first degree misdemeanor, which is the most serious misdemeanor charge.

3. This is the first I have heard of it, the words sound less ominous than hit and run.
