In Sacramento County, Hit and Run accidents accounted for 1015 collisions in 2019. Here’s some critical advice: First, your uninsured motorist (UM) and collision coverages will cover a hit-and-run accident. Second, take pictures of the damage to your car where the other car hit yours. Physical contact between the fleeing vehicle and yours is required for your UM coverage to apply. Third, file a police report. If the police won’t come to the scene, then go to the local police (within city limits) or local CHP office (in unincorporated areas) and make a counter report about the incident. Four, notify your insurance immediately. I suggest doing it within a day of the collision or at least the next business day.
