Neighbor advised her to call 911 and report her self so that it would not be hit and run. There is no damage to the plastic bumper cover of our van, and unlikely any to the trailer hitch or steel bumper of the truck. Eventually, someone called our daughter back from state patrol probably, and said the other driver did not call it in, so she could go.
All this is to say that I do see how someone could panic. I do.
I hope the driver who struck that woman and her dog is caught soon.
