Had a fender bender tonight

I was on my way home from the library and I got distracted by the car next to me and I ran into a van in front of me! I was only going 5 miles per hour but it was a nice solid hit. But I immediately started to get out of my car to look at the damage and exchange information with the other driver but for some reason the person just drove away. So I followed him a little ways but he/she/it wouldn’t stop and then they pulled away fast. Then I thought “Screw it, I tried to do the right thing but if they’re going to just drive away I’m going to just get out of it and leave.” And then they made a left turn and I just kept going straight.
I never had that happen before. Maybe they were drunk or on drugs.


Drunk/drug driver. I’d consider that a win if not much damage to your car. For safety in future I’d get the licence plate. If over here the insurance wants licence numbers. Just crossing the T’s.

I wouldn’t stress about it because you did all you can to catch up to them.


Yeah, good idea…

hey Nick, I’m glad it was not serious, i worry about that sort of thing but i have to keep my wits about me, i drive about 600miles a month that is almost 1000km :slight_smile:
