Angry Hit & Run

Well im sitting here in my living room..around 2:20am just trolling forums and googleling stuff to try and find parts for Jareds car and I hear SMACK ...you know....that sound that someone just took off someones mirror. Well i go outside as soon as i hear it and low n behold, it was my fiancées car that was hit.

Well the road I live on is a circle, one way in and one way out. So Im standing at the entrance/exit waiting for this car to come around and wouldn't you know it...NO ONE EVER DID. So that means that the **** nut that hit her car lives in the apartment complex. So I came back to the house and grabbed my phone and called the police and woke up Michelle (She was sleeping on the couch) Well...the cop gets here and takes her name and info and I told him that the person that hit the car never left the complex...so he drove around and said he seen no vehicle matching the description with any noticeable damage. So, im like what the **** ever...I'll take a walk myself. While Im talking to the cop, Michelle is on the phone with the insurance company. So the cop was being a complete ass about the whole situation. He was like..go ahead ..knock yourself out, you try and find the vehicle. So I said **** it...came inside...put my shoes on and walked the entire complex twice. Unfortunately I couldn't find the car. I wasn't gonna walk around with a flashlight at 2:45 in the morning, I would have had the cops called on me ( I live in the ghetto...lets remember that) So...whatever.

We won't here back from the insurance company until Monday.

Pics.









I couldn't find the glass at first. Then I find it underneath the car that was parked in front of her.









Horrible picture...i know...but I took it for reference as you can see how far the glass went.









The glass






Then I found the missing plastic piece about 3 cars away...







I hate stupid people


Anyone have a passenger side heated mirror for a 2008 Kia Optima?

Wow Mike that sucks! like Dman said. Are you sure it was a car that hit the mirror? did you hear someone drive by? they would have to be driving really fast to have the mirror break like that. usually those fold away mirrors just fold and won't break like that.

WOW...no..sorry...but it was a car. I was litterally outside in under 10 seconds of hearing the sound. I saw no one. Peoples mirrors are always getting taken off up where I live. It's just dumbass people that don't know how to drive. And IF it was someone with a bat there was no other cars damaged...just Michelles. And if it was directed at me...they would have done something to the cobalt.

Sucks that happened to you and her. That was one of the condition of any apt that I moved into here, real parking spots. I hate parking on the road, an easy target.
I wouldnt be too quick to turn into insurance, some companies will charge more for road parking on their premiums.
