Vehicle versus Bicyclist
Hit and run drivers sometimes will take their vehicle to an auto body shop
and claim the damage is due to striking a large animal.
If you operate an auto body shop and see damage that looks unusual or is
suspect, call your local police. You may not have heard of any hit and runs,
but your driver could have committed a crime in an entirely different city
- or the press does not yet have the story.
Vehicle versus pedestrian or bicyclist . Damage may be very minor dents to
major damage, such as examples below. If you see a car driving with any similar
damage, at the very least record the license plate in case you hear of a
hit and run in the media later. Better still, report the vehicle to 911,
as driving a vehicle with this type of damage is illegal in most areas. Let
the police determine if the vehicle has been involved in a documented crash
or a hit and run.
