Default So I just saved someone...

... paying a lot of money out of their pocket to fix their car.

Was driving up a street in my 'hood when my dash cam catches the following:



The quality of video from PhotoBucket sucks... But you should get the idea.

So I turned around and the guy in the white GMC left. So I went home, burned the video to disc and when to the house that the car was parked outside. It was the owner, so I told her what I saw and gave her the disc and my info. There were two guys sitting in a dump truck across the street where they're working on paving a driveway. The woman asks them if they know who drives the white truck that hit her car because she was sure the guy worked with them. The two guys at first feign ignorance as to who was driving the truck. Then when I describe the truck and that we have video of it, one of the guy says that the truck didn't hit the car because there was no damage to the truck. So the woman goes back into her house and I leave.

So I'm heading into Costco when as I am driving, I happen to see the GMC at a gas station. I pull in and whip out my camera which I capture him wiping down the side of his truck. I also capture his license plate.
(Sorry for the sideways video... I can't figure out how to rotate video in my video editor - need a better one.)



Feeling a little vindicated that I can provide even better information to the cops if necessary, I continue in to Costco.
While I am at the checkout, my phone rings. I figure it's the cops. Nope, it's the husband of the wife of the car.

He proceeds to tell me that one of the guys in the dump truck went to the house to get their phone number so the owner of the white truck could call them. Obviously as soon as the guys heard we had video, they called their boss (the driver of the truck) told him we have video... and he decided to make right.

He called the owners and offered to pay to have everything fixed to make it right. He provided them with his insurance and contact information.

So I just saved those poor people a huge bill.

Here is a pic of the damage to their car:

Nice job. That would have been a rude awakening to say the lest.

I dropped off the 2nd video and the pic of the license plate... They have taken the car to get an estimate done... Near $4000 to make it like new. I'm really glad I bought my dash cam now.

Kudos to you for taking the time to help out. We need more people like you to make people do the right thing if they damage someone else's property.

Thanks. I am a firm believer in karma. I try to do unto others as I want done unto me. Or however the saying goes. It literally cost me nothing but two DVDs and a bit of my time - yet it will save them their insurance deductible and increased payments when they renew. I don't know these people, but they seem very nice to me. I hope they have a chance to pay it forward to someone in need.

And hopefully will make the GMC driver a little more careful next time. He could REALLY be in trouble if the cops were brought into this because he left the scene of an accident. Bad enough he's driving an ugly truck.

Wish someone had done that with my son's 200. His cost was just over 3g's. He got the police to come over and it is logged as a hit and run. Because it is registered as a hit and run he pays no deductable and no increase in his insurance rates. His whole drivers back quarter had to be cut out and replaced on a car he had barely had 3 weeks. It was hit by a Maroon 4x4 but the witness didn't see the plate.

Takes a real douche bag to do that to someone else's property (even by accident) and then leave. Obviously doesn't subscribe to the "do unto others as you want them to do unto you" philosophy.

I was at work a few weeks back and came across a wreck that had just happened and the at fault vehicle had fled the scene. Tracked the coolant trail until I lost it and then just cruised the area until I found the suspect vehicle parked at a car lot with other cars that were for sale. Looked a little out of place sitting there with the front end torn off, lol. That driver had a bad day and we were able to make it right for the victim. Always good when it works out that way.
