RS fan sent us a video of an unknown scene just West of Alpine and State st in Rockford. After we posted the video, a person involved said the following:
It was a hit and run accident.
The victim said (copy/paste) “RED CHEVROLET TAHOE, WITH THIS PLATES ( Z29 6338) !!!!!!
I JUST BOUGHT MY NEW CAR 2-3 WEEKS AGO! AND ABOUT 20min AGO THIS TAHOE CRASHED INTO ME TWICE IN THE RIGHT PASSENGER SIDE!!! HE STOPPED AND A AFRICAN AMERICAN GUY, AGE AROUND HIS 30’S, TALL ABOUT 5’9 or 6’1 GOT OUT AND SAID THAT THERE WAS NO SCRATCHES OR DENTS IN MY CAR! & WHEN I SHOWED HIM THAT HE MESSED UP MY DOOR, HE TOLD ME THAT “OH… WELL I HAVE INSURANCE SO CALL THE POLICE” AND I TOLD HIM “OK THEN STAY HERE! DONT LEAVE SO WE CAN FIX THIS” THEN HE TOLD ME THAT HE WAS GOING TO GO GET HES INSURANCE AND LIE TO ME AND TOOK OFF!!! “
This is a perfect example as to why cameras (Even cell phone cameras) are extremely important. Whenever you are involved in an accident, take video of the other party involved. Take photos of their plates and vehicle. That way if they flee, you have their photos for evidence.
