Post Hit and Run

I was involved in a hit and run yesterday on the way to work. It was about 7:00 am and it was stop and go traffic. I was coming to a stop and a 1989 Honda Civic rear ended me and took off. He darted to the exit ramp and I went after him while on the phone with 911. I got the plate # and gave it to the 911 person, meanwhile still chasing the bastard that hit me, that guy it the curb and a pole trying to get away from me but he couldn’t. the 911 person told me to stop chasing him but I couldn’t, I finally got him to stop but then the 911 person told me to let him go because he maybe on drugs or have a gun, I thought to myself he is right because I am going to be a dad very soon. So I had to let him go. Anyways, the way I got him to stop was I cut him off at a gas station and he had nowhere to go.

There was no real damage but I am getting a check from my insurance since that car and the plates expired in Aug of 2005 and the owner never removed the plates before selling it to someone. The owner didn’t get the guys name or number because the guy paid with cash.

So I a very small chance of getting my deducible back…$250.00!

I just thought I would share with my friends of 7thgencivic….

Thanks for reading!

Thank you and the detective that is working the case may have a lead on the guy but it still might take several months for anything to happen.
