What's up me with trucks?
Two out of three of my car accidents were F250 and Volvo Roll-Off.
My little Corolla needs some rest and peace...

Glad your OK! Make sure you get all of this in writing from whoever represents the company. More then likely you will have to get your insurance company involved or a lawyer involved to get any type of response from the company or their insurance. A similar event happened to a friend of mine that was cut off by a UPS truck. It was not a fun thing for him to deal with.

I'm sure the officer gave you a case number. You can get a copy of the report in two or three days. Just remember to keep your cool while standing in line at the window. They (cops and civilian clerks) cover each others , so if you're a smart with them they wont be of any help to you. Good luck with getting his name. Civil suits only cost $50.00 to initiate.

He gave us nothing but incident report to send to Department of Safety for crash records.
Other than him handing out two forms to me and the other driver, he didn't do anything, asked anything.
I was just blown away and looked at him "That's it? You not gonna ask anything??" "That's it. You are good to go."

His badge number should be on the report. File a complaint.

Again, there was no report.
He gave this two blank form for us to fill out and send it to Austin.

They usualy stay out of it if no one is hurt and the cars don't need to be towed. You should have asked for a report to be filed though.

Here's update.
The other insurance company just sent a person to claim my damage.
It came out $$2,528.64 for my car and whatever the rental cost is, they are going to pay for all.
They also cut me $500.00 check for my "inconvenience".
He told me to hold the check til next week and if I feel anything else, just call him and we'll make a new deal.
I think it had to do with "hit and run" part.
I'm just glad everything went easy and smooth.

Wow. Sound like you got "blue formed". Typically when you have a two car minor accident and both parties have insurance, no injuries, no vehicles towed you can do a blue accident form and send it to dps.

The ST-3 accident form which officers do accident reports on is not much more different other than the form you received. The ST-3 has a sections the lists the officers narrative and factors that he thinks contributed to the accident. It also has an area for a diagram.

The insurance companies determine who is at fault in an accident case. The accident form is just an information gathering tool thats tracks statistics for DPS and NHTSA (nat'l highway and traffic safety admin).

Glad to hear you are ok.

A little addvice for every one is to carry a cheap disposable camera in the glove box to help document some of the skid marks or traffic signs and so forth. With the Texas heat it is a good idea to replace it every other month to keep it fresh. Pictures can be a thousand words when proving your case in court.

Here is the deal for cops filing an accident report:

injury- file a report
damage over $1000- file a report
uninsured motorist- file a report

In your case the damage was over $1000, in mine the guy who hit me was uninsured. I didn't get a report either.

Hey Nut, $2500! Isn't that more than your car is worth?

Actually, the insurance person quoted my car somewhere $3,500-4,000.
A lot more than I thought.
