1. The woman had an insurance card but, sorry to judge a book by its cover, I’ll be pleasantly surprised if the insurance is still in effect.
2. The people in this town are so nice! A man saw the accident and came over to give me his card if I needed a witness. I was crying and hadn’t been able to get in touch with Vince. I knew Vince was in meetings all day and I didn’t have a clue how to get in touch with him if he doesn’t answer his direct line. I should know that and I do now.
The witness has a friend who works at 3M and he said he would call his friend and get him to find Vince. The policeman knew I was trying to call Vince and he called back to the police station and got them to call the guards’ office at 3M and find Vince. Since Chad had worked out there last summer, he also knew how to find Vince so the phones at 3M must’ve been ringing off the wall with everyone looking for Vince. By the time everyone got word to everyone, Chad and Vince both showed up at the accident, which happened about 3 blocks from home. Bet everyone was wondering who would’ve shown up had it been a major accident since I got the whole family there for a fender bender. But . . hey . . it was my CR-V that I love so much and I was pretty darned mad at that woman.
3. Even though my car is old, we still keep full coverage so if the woman doesn’t have insurance, my own insurance will cover it.
4. I don’t know if she got a ticket. I guess I’ll see when I get the accident report.
Nothing happens quickly when you live so far from a city. It will probably be Monday or Tuesday before I can get an accident report. Then our insurance will send an adjuster out to look at it. Our insurance doesn’t have any approved body shops here but we can use one that isn’t approved. There are several here and we’ve used one already and the other one we like is owned by the husband of the girl who cuts my hair. Either of those shops will be fine with me.
