a little over a month ago when pulling into a parking spot the side of my van bumped the back corner of another van. I got out checked it out and saw no damage. I thought for sure if I left my info that some damage would magically appear and so since I didnt see anything I just let it go and didnt leave my info. Someone in the lot saw me leave without leaving my info and took down my plate and left it on their windshield. A week later a police officer called me investigating a hit and run. I told him exactly what happened and he said the people claim there is $700 worth of damage going all the way up to their sliding door. I told him we would pay for it and take care of it and he said he had to cite me for hit and run of an unattended vehicle but advised me to contest it and just tell teh judge everything and that I would probably get off expecially since I was paying for the damage. I submitted the claim to my insurance contAnswer Question

No because regardless of what she did you broke the law. You never ever leave after you hit another car no matter how minor.

The insurance company will contact the police to file a report if they feel it's necessary. Same thing happened to me but it wasn't a hit and run. Let's just say it was a good thing I took pictures of both my car and her car right then and there. She filed some bogus claim and actually did damage to her car to make it look like I had hit her harder than I had claimed. I went through two insurance adjusters and sent them the pictures I took and it was dropped. The insurance company will take care of it. I don't think you should talk to the police about it because it will go on record and the judge might think you are trying to act like it wasn't a big deal. Let the insurance company handle it. I always tell everyone I know to have a camera in their car "just in case".
