Leaving the scene of an accident statue of limitation

Okay..here goes, I am being ''charged'' with leaving scene of an accident that occured over 20 years ago! Now, I was never involved in any such accident however NJ said I was, I have never had any knowledge of this until about a week ago! I moved out of state 16 years ago. I recently divorced and I am trying to put my life in order in many ways and NJ MVC was part of it, my x husband had numerous parking tickets while all cars were registered to me. I was told by NJMVC that I had to pay a fine to the court, I mailed the money assuming it was a parking ticket my x husband got and they mailed it back to me and said I have to appear in court for this violation! How on earth could this pop up now and how could they even prove it was me 20 years later? Please Please help if you can clarify it for me.. Thanks
