On Christmas Eve at approximately 1 p.m. I was stopped in the dedicated left turn lane to turn into Marketplace from Lorimer Road. The road was snow packed and very slippery, when suddenly I was hit from behind by a white car.
The driver of the car and myself got out to assess damages. He introduced himself as Chris, then apologized and as my vehicle was higher than his, all the damage done to my Chevy Traverse was that the trailer hitch cover popped off. His vehicle had a large crack on the bumper. He suggested we turn in to Marketplace to exchange information, and as we were "sitting ducks" on the slippery road, I agreed it would be safer.
I saw in my rear-view mirror he did turn in, and as I looked ahead to park in the McDonald’s loading zone, which would give us room in a very busy lot, he took off. The bus stop on Lorimer was crowded, and I only hope that someone noticed what kind of vehicle it was as I took quite a jolt and I believed him when he said he'd follow me.
I posted a note at the bus stop but so far have heard nothing. So Chris, know that karma will get you, and everyone of us out there that drive, appreciate it's people like you that drive insurance rates even higher.
Thank you so much. The whiplash I sustained will heal with therapy and time, but my disgust that you were such a coward will stay with me for a long time. I wonder if you perhaps had a little too much après, or perhaps you didn't have a valid drivers licence.
Regardless, your actions are a reminder that sadly there are people in this world who have no conscience or morals. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, you gave me the best present ever as I've always wanted a headache that lasted for five solid days, (not to mention the neck, shoulder and back pain) and I love the fact that it's going to cost a lot of money for physiotherapy.
