  • Police should be called if car is hit

    To the editor,

    This is to the unknown woman who hit my 2007 blue Blazer Nov. 5, 2008 at Food Lion parking lot at 5 p.m.

    She wouldn’t and insisted I not call the police. “Oh! I can push out that bumper and it will be fine,” she said.

    Well I hope she can live with herself and what she did to my parked car.

    It’s costing me $1,000 to fix the damage she caused, and she said, “Oh I have insurance but we don’t need it.”

    Well I hope when, and if she reads this she can live with what she did to me.
