Alright Jalops, this one is a doozy. What we've got here is a hit-and-run driver, a Ford Focus, and the single, solitary piece of chrome that was evidence of the perp's wrongdoing. Think you can help solve it?
Reader Mike Luscher was sitting at a red light, minding his own business:
I was Driving my Mother's '09 Focus, And was essentially sideswiped on the front bumper when the other car Ran a Red light while doing at least 65, My front bumper to his passenger side. This occurred in that Odd little stereotype of NYC, Staten Island. This chrome piece is all that was left from this, It happened so quickly I couldn't identify the car.
...I was driving on Woolley Avenue, stopped at a red light for the intersection of Woolley Avenue and North Gannon AvenueWaited a couple seconds in case anyone would decide not to stop at the light, looked to make sure nobody was still coming despite the red lightAnd then the offending driver went around the people waiting at the now red light on North Gannon Avenue, right through the red light, and into the path of my carI remained stopped to collect myself for a moment, drove up a few feet to get out of the intersection, and out of everyone's wayAnd pulled overThe offending car went by at about 60mph, either very dark blue or black, couldn't see the driver, couldn't catch the plate, nothing at that speedSo put that part before the stopping and pulling overPolice were called, waited an two and a half hours for them to show upThey took down the info we had to give them, dismissed the fact I had a part of their car, and that was that. There were no Security camera's unfortunately.Going to imitate the motherland and get a Dash Cam.
