Accidentally Killing Someone While Time Traveling

If you were in a time traveling machine that needed excess speed to actually time travel, like the car from the movie Back to the Future, and you accidentally hit someone, killing the person, in the process of time traveling, would you go to the authorities or simple flee the scene? 

Remember, you have a time machine, so you can just jump out of that time zone, if you accidentally hit someone while jumping through time.

For example, you are in 2015 in the middle of a farm, and you decide to take the time machine for a spin.

So, you start accelerating, traveling at high speeds, then the machine jumps time to the year 2555, and now you are in the middle of a metropolitan.

Right when you appear, you hit someone and kill them!

Would you stick around to answer the authorities of that time or would you leave? If you choose the latter, would you feel guilty? Would it matter?
