I was in an accident in California and both of us pulled off the road afterwards. we got out of the cars and the other driver instantly started asking for my information. so I gave it to him, and he methodically copied everything, then gave it back to me. I grabed it, turned around, put it in my car, turned back around to get his info--and he was gone.
Friends are telling me this was a hit and run on his part. I was at the scene for an hour re-attaching my bumper and calling my insurance co. I asked if I should call the police, but they said don't bother. My friends are telling me I should call the Hiway patrol.
I didn't get any info from the other driver, not even a license plate.
was it a hit-and-run?
should I call the police even though I don't have any info on the driver?
