My question involves an accident that occurred in the state of: CA
3 months ago, i was involved in an accident. someone pulled out of a cafe driveway too far and i hit them, but they sped off. the damage to my car was extensive, and required a tow. so i called the police & filed a report. i had my car towed and filed the claim with my insurance & the investigation concluded i was not at fault.
Today in the mail i received a copy of a police report naming me the driver of a hit and run of a parked car, along with the individuals name and info.
here's where things get sticky.
my car information is listed, such as VIN number, Licence plate, etc. BUT my car still had dealer plates when i towed that night, as it was new. and the police report also stated this car was parked ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN from where i got my car towed.. the police report indicated there is no photo evidence nor hwy footage of incident
so it seems as though, they just found the two police reports from the same night, and are trying to accuse me since it was around the same time in the same HUGE city of los angeles on a busy saturday night...
oh, and the damage suffered by said parked car was minor it to the back side lights. if my car was MESSED UP i'd expect a little more han a broken tail light on supposed car
the officer requests at the bottom to call him to further discuss this report
this seems like an extreme reach on their behalf, but i'm not sure how to approach the situation. and advice is greatly appreciated!!!
