My mom was just the victim of a hit and run. She was sitting at an intersection when she was side-swiped by a woman in a mini-van. The damage to my mother's car was pretty extensive. The whole back quarter of my mom's car was ripped away down to the unibody. So I would imagine the damage to the van was also pretty heavy. In all honesty how often are these people caught? My mom wasn't able to get a plate number since the other driver took off pretty quickly but did call 911 and gave a full statement to the police right after she was ran into.
