Road accident witnesses sought

By FredJ - 31 July 2008 44

I know it’s a long shot but if anyone witnessed a moron drive his black sedan into the side of my white Holden HZ ute when joining Hindmarsh at about 9:15 this morning can they please get in touch.

The wanker tried to drive off but I followed and got his rego – I’m guessing if he’s that low he’s not going to admit to anything so some witnesses would be great.

I was in the middle lane driving east on Hindmarsh; he came out of the Parkway exit lane, cut straight into my lane and into the side of me.

Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

Why wouldn’t Shannons find them? If you provided the registration details of the other vehicle to the Police it will be part of your accident report you should have filled in at a station…

Shannons will get a copy of this (after you give them the job reference number) and hey presto…

Thanks for the sympathy everyone. I’m now on to the getting quotes stage. Can anyone recommend a good panel beater/sprayer? My damage is fairly minor. A dint, scrape and broken mirror. Didn’t really get to inspect his but sure it’ll be worse on a new car. His wing mirror was totally wrecked and hanging off.

BTW – Shannons are confident they’ll track him down. Hope they do or I’m stuck paying the excess.

Who says they haven’t? After all FredJ did give them good details. Speculation isn’t going to help the cause here.

Surely? Knowing something happened and proving it before the Courts are different things altogether (note: I have no reason to not believe FredJ and his account of what happened).

I’m glad you weren’t hurt, FredJ.

You would think the police would want to talk to them – preferably before they kill somebody. Surely they should at least be charged for leaving the scene of an accident.

Correct me if I am wrong, but can’t you go to the Motor Reg in Dickson, pay $21 and get their details, based on their rego info?

I don’t think you can any more – privacy BS and all that.

Old metal car versus new plastic car… how much damage to your car?

Thumper 4:16 pm 31 Jul 08

That really sucks…

Not sure – I’ll leave that to insurance. If I have no joy there then maybe I’ll look at other options.

Please let us know how this progresses Fred – that really sucks!

He might have been pissed or stoned by the description of his driving style. Good luck with your search Fred.

What’s a bet he’s unlicensed and uninsured?

I’m betting he’s not. The cops didn’t seem interested but I think they’ll have better things to do – his rego is XXXXXX, so keep out of the morons way if you see him!

That’s what you pay insurance for. Inform your insurance company, give them the details and let them sort it.

Same thing nearly happened to me about 2 weeks ago on the Gold Coast. I was driving by myself and a car very nearly slammed into me when they were changing lanes not seeing me. And I was thinking even if they did hit me how could I prove it was their fault cause it was two of them in the car verses just me. Only way would have been with police forensics.
