hit and run fender bender on the highway - need advice
So, on my way home last Thursday, this choad in a Mercedes (a Miami Vice era POS with collector plates, no less) decides to do a lane change into my left rear quarter on my daily beater Focus. I gave him the universal "WTF" shrug-slash-arm movement, as he continued his lane change and was now behind me. I pulled over from the center lane to the right lane (we're on a three lane highway, BTW), and he follows suit. I find a nice spot on the shoulder to pull off, and he tears off. OK, I say to myself, the race is on. I kick the pedals of my 5 speed 4 banger like Gregory Hines on speed, but the Benzo is gone like Donkey Kong. I got the plate, though, so I call 911. They ask me to pull over and wait for a black and white to show up. I do, they come, take my info, etc. Gave me a phone number to call to get the accident report after I wait a few days for process. ANYWAY, I got the report last night. The guy showed up to the cop-shop two days later, and said he didn't know he hit anyone; but there WAS corresponding damage to his car. On the report, it lists his address and name, and states he's got State Farm insurance. I call my State Farm guy, and he tells me no one is in the system with his name, etc. Hmmmm.
So, I guess my question is: what should I do? My car just has a scratch & dent on it, and the left rear tire is scuffed up pretty good. Shouldn't this dill-hole have to pay for something? Not that I'd fix the car - I'd rather buy a Dana 60 for my truck, or a nice little cam for the 460 that's getting freshened up. At least this ***-clown now has an official "hit-and-run" on his record, which I guess gives me a little solace.
You know, about two years ago, some chick in a Ranger lost a bookshelf out of the overloaded bed of her truck, which I caught with my hood and front bumper at 65 mph. I caught up to her and motioned for her to pull over, and she bailed off the highway. Got a partial plate that time, but the police couldn't do anything about it. I'm not sure why my little car is getting picked on so bad on my commute, but it's time for payback. The question is, how??
Sorry for the long rant.
