    It was parked.... and they ran.

    I was awakened this morning to the sound of my car alarm and my phone sounding because they are connected to each other. I figured it was set off by the kid up the street with no exhaust on his mustang. After silencing the alarm, I go to my window to find that my Charger has been hit. On top of that, the striking vehicle was nowhere to be seen. Passersbys tried to chase down the vehicle to get a plate number, with no luck. Debris left behind has been able to narrow things down to one brand of vehicle.

    Although I am upset that this has happened, I am glad that my car was unoccupied. I also hope that the driver of the other vehicle is okay. Reports have been filled, insurance company has been contacted. Let's see what happens. Will try to post photos.

    I really hope they catch the other driver.

    If my car was involved in a hit and run, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the other driver’s well being. I would want to catch the scumbag and press charges.

    Sorry for your trouble. Impressed with your attitude. I have been to dozens (hundreds?) of accident scenes. It's always good when no one gets hurt.

    Oh... I want the SOB caught. I just hope he's alive and well when they catch him.

    Assume the passerby people that chased, must know the type vehicle ?

    It appeared that all the outside damage was just in that corner. I saw damage to the lower control arms (Just replaced them 3 weeks ago). I'll know more when the repair shop calls.

    The guy that chased the striking vehicle didn't catch him. The parts debris left behind is from a 3rd gen (2002-2006) nissan altima.

    Some time back I took a similar hit on my 2008 Chargum sitting in front of the house. The police never looked for the person that did it. There was a bit over $6,000.00 in damage. Insurance paid, as I had stated value insurance on the car. I no longer park on the street.
    Hope your situation gets resolved in a timely manor.

    Update: So, I picked up my rental. But I forgot to fill out the paperwork with the collision shop. So they haven't looked at the car yet. For now, I'm the driver of a 2020 Toyota Corolla. I've told my friends, and they want pictures. Because it's always entertaining to watch a guy that's 6 feet 6 inches and weighs 340 pounds get in and out of such a vehicle.

    So.
    After many days of back and forth between the insurance company and the collision shop, i have been given a return date for my Charger. Final damage number was close to 11 grand. Looking forward to being reunited with my vehicle. Corolla life has been a bit of a squeeze.
