This is the first time I've ever started a thread, but I just made it home from the hospital after being hit by a car! I'm a little bruised and I've chipped my front teeth. My bike's down tube is dented, from what I've read on the forums, that means it's unsafe to ride it, correct?
The guy who hit me stopped and asked if I was okay and offered to give me a ride anywhere. I was a bit shocked but he even seemed more spooked than me so he took off! Thankfully there were lots of witnesses and one lady was able to get a license plate number. I know in an accident things happen fast, so sometimes people aren't accurately able to remember plate numbers, but at least it's better than nothing.
My question is, how seriously will the police dept look for this person? I know there are bigger crimes than someone being minorly hurt by a traffic accident, but I'm pissed that he took off and now I have to replace my bike.
EDIT: UPDATE ON 8/6 ON HOW THE DENVER POLICE DEPT DOES NOTHING.
