so i was riding at night and i was trying to get to the left turn lane to turn left. so i look back and see there is no car so i signal and go into the lane. at that moment, an old lady speeds up and hits my back wheel really hard. i hit the hood and it sends me flying forward. i land and i stand up with only a scraped up arm and a leg with a minor ache. i motion that im not badly hurt and i walk off to the side because other cars were coming trying to pass by. that was my mistake cause the lady just boned out when i was going to the side. then, two guys come around to me saying that they saw everything and they give me the lady's plate number and theyre phone numbers for witnesses and all that. then i call the cops and tell them my story and the info when they arrive. they take it all down and give me an incident number and they tell me that theyre looking for her and then they leave.
now my back wheel is completely ruined, my frame is bent, and one of my cranks is bent.
is there anyway i can get some money out of this to fix/replace my bike parts?
if not, is anything going to happen to the lady who hit me?
a hit and run should not go unpunished, especially when a bicyclist was hit cause that is just f*cked up.
