Well, as the title says, I was involved in a hit and run this afternoon.
First off I'm OK, and (more importantly, jk) the truck's ok'ish.
I was sitting, stopped, at a traffic light and a lat 90's dodge 3500 dually (non diesel) hit me. It wasn't bad, his driver mirror hit my pass mirror and then his big butt fender did a little scraping on my front pass fender, right above the tire. He (well the driver, no positive ID) pulled to the light and stopped, rolled the window down, adjusted the mirror
and turned right.
I'm thinking, "Oh, OK, he's going to pull into that parking lot right there." So I get over, turn and guess what, HE DIDN'T PULL INTO THE LOT!!!! So I'm following him, flashing my lights and motioning to pull over. After about 3 min of this, and passing MANY spots to stop, I said F it, and called up the ol' po leeece. The lady, after getting the plate # and specifics, told me to stop and wait for an officer to show up.
I really wanted to keep following this A hole and see what they had to say for themselves, but I'm being all law abidey and stuff, so I stopped like I was asked to do.
Well the officer showed up 10 min later or so, (the first thing he said to me was "Gee those windows sure are dark. You have a prescription for that tint, right?
) took a statement, took pics, filed a report, and told me that since I couldn't ID the driver they couldn't cite them unless they find the driver and they admit, WTF!!!!!!
Well sorry for the long post.......... so the damage, a "scratch" on the mirror cap, it rubbed off
, and a few SMALL scratches and some green paint on my fender flare (the stock kind) I think the paint will come right off, and the scratches don't look bad at all
could have been worse I guess.
BTW - the cop let me off with a verbal warning for the tint
