Just when I thought everything was going great after years of bad luck..get a house, go on vacation, start a new job...
...the girl's civic was stolen 2 days before we left for vacation (recovered and semi-stripped)
and today I let her drive while I was hopping out to pickup & pay for some take-out. I watch- in slow motion- a large GMC van back up into the street and t-bone my 6.
I couldnt [fizzle]ing believe it. Was she blind???!!! She pulled away from the car and asked me to tell my girl to follow her. I went over to my drivers window and heard the van take off. It was down the street, & around the corner in a few seconds & of course never came back.
I only have Liability. So basically Im driving a POS car for the next 6 months. Nice.
Thank you stupid bitch. Heres a warm wish of dog [shizzle] on your carpet and a massive [fizzle] you from every kind of bad luck and negative karma for the next 5 years.
i've got the address of the guy who hit me.. on purpose.. i know it. bastard. but just wait till summer when his lush green lawn turns to dirt and someone dumped a can of aircraft paint remover on his cars sitting in the sun.
then the guy who told the cop that i ran the stop sign... he might have a similar problem soon. i've got a big tow rope that i'm thinking of getting creative with.
its been over six months since that accident.. i'm still a little upset.
its was only "cosmetic", the door still latches..but Im still pissed as hell. 1/4 of the back panel and a good 5 inches of the driver's side near the edge. I feel like beating the [shizzle] out of something with a bat for 10 minutes. Maybe twenty.
I was so happy to finally have a car that was dent free..i honest to god thought that exact phrase in my mind 1/2 the times I walked out to my car since I bought it in august- shiiiiiiiiit.
my gf caught the plates and the cop was a nice dude, said he couldt drive out to Kirkland where it was registered, but he would research it and give me all the info he finds for small claims court. One of my students is a lawyer- so maybe Ill ask him for a favor....Zach you can still have my front sus..but I dont think Ill be shelling out for springs & struts any time soon >
Wow, that sucks Ian...but if you have the plate number, you should be all set. Did you find out from the police yet who the person is/where she lives? If the plates are valid, I dunno about WA, but here in MA, you get locked up for leaving the scene of an accident. You could use that as leverage against her. If she is insured, you will get paid very easily and quickly. Leaving the scene = bad. If not insured, you can threaten to press charges if she doesn't pay up. Do not worry, you still have recourse since you got the plate....give your GF a big kiss for that at least!!
No doode. Call your insurance and tell them the situation. Most insurance companies, even though you just have liability, cover hit and runs. If that bitch hit you and just sped off, then your insurance might cover your damamges. I know it sounds iffy, but my insurance did it. I have Farmers. So just check with them and see what they say.
Almost forgot, I only had liability too and they covered my damages.

Sorry to hear about the car. Karma will pay that person back in the end, and hopefully they will charge her for hit and run.
Yeah, ALWAYS get the license plate number ASAP and the names of any witnesses. It's a good thing you guys got the plate number.
Never fall for the follow me routine. I've seen a rear ender at a yield sign, and it looked like they had agreed to move to stop blocking traffic, but all of a sudden the rear car zooms away. It's times like those that you wished a cop car was around. That guy should have gotten the plate number down before moving.
