    hit & run reports?

    drove 2 hrs to pick up daughter at airport, was rear ended at stoplight by a commercial truck. had to drive 2 blocks to get out of traffic & call police. when officer got there he said no one was pulled over. the guy that hit me took off! it was a busy intersection, 5 pm, full on rush hour. my light just turned red, & he threw me into the middle of the intersection. I know lots of people saw it. is there a place they might have reported it, besides the police? it takes at least 5 days to hear back from police in these cases. & would like to know if there are any witnesses that came forward. my car is pretty well shot. I'm fine, but really stiff & sore. mostly just scared the puddin outta me. really don't like hit & runs!!

    Re: hit & run reports?

    The police should be able to put a report in the paper asking for witnesses. Also, double check with them regarding possible municipal cameras placed at the intersection.

    I'd check all businesses and/or residences at the intersection. Ask if they may have any security cameras that may have caught the accident or if there may be a witness. Many folks don't want to get involved but some will be willing to help. Knock on doors and do it quick. Often times that data gets overwritten every day or two if the establishment doesn't have an incident requiring it to be kept.

    Good luck.

    believe it or not, there were no houses or buisinesses there. it's a major crossroad/ on /off ramp. no buildings for 2 blocks. called & asked if they have cameras there, but nope, none. guess I will have to be patient & wait till they call. good idea on craigslist. will chk there.

    mamabear, welcome to the club.. I'm not only a member, but the President

    DigginThePast is dead on... If you are in the area see if anyone has a tape. You already know the day and time and it will take them minutes to retrieve the film I wasn't as lucky... The whole accident was caught on film, but we were unable to read the plate due to a flood light from the pick-up interfering with the camera. I should ask my mechanic for a copy of it, then again I watched it over and over several times already trying to discern the plate of the offender.

    Here is a picture of the aftermath... PS. It was parked in a lot, just off the road

    Re: hit & run reports?

    I have not heard back from the police yet. they said it would take at least 5 days before there was any news. there were no cameras. asked already, & no buildings nearby. so I'm hoping witness comes forward.
    Spartacus, wow, they pushed you into a building?
    people can be so stupid. but fear makes you do dumb things. like leave the scene of an accident.
    am trying to charge the battery in the car so I can drive it (very slowly) to the body shop & see what they have to say. looks like the battery was thrown cuz the clamps are twisted. the trunk is crunched & I'm hoping the trunk light wouldn't go off. & that's why the battery is dead. but it's not charging & it's been an hour.
    onfire, I have not heard of video glasses. what a neat tech to have. a little freaky, but in some situations could be useful.

    Re: hit & run reports?

    I had parked my pickup in the driveway.. Came in the house and went to bed.. Woke up the next morning went outside and saw the taillight busted out... It was a hit and run..

    When she got home.. Justice was served, The whole rear door of the Van was caved in..

    Then I got the blame for parking it there... Go Figure
    Theres A Place For All Creatures..Right Next To The Taters And Gravy..
