Hello world! Guess what?!
As you guessed from the title, I had my first hit and run today. I was just heading home and driving through this narrow road. I stopped the car because there was a construction site ahead. Then suddenly … a car behind me hit the rear of my car. I wasn’t sure what to do so when the flagger signaled me to go I continued and tried to pull over. I, instead, park the car on the parking lot of the mall. The person who hit my car didn’t followed me to the parking lot. Another driver who saw what happened followed me to there. She remembered the car’s license plate. Then I called the police about it. Unfortunately, I did not have a name or phone number of the eye witness so there was no luck. Although, I did told the policeman to talk anyone of the construction workers, especially the flaggers. I just talked to my parents about the car situation. I got a half an hour of lecture of how stupid I was. Got that over with.
Quite frankly, I was so confused what to do. I’m glad there are kind people like the woman who remembered the car’s license that hit me to help me. Was it a mistake that I didn’t know what to do in that situation? Yes. Was I very confused? Oh hell yes. Now I know what to do if it ever happens again. Hopefully, it won’t but, from this experience, I will make necessary steps to make sure to get all the right information to report it to the police.
