Did you ask the store to check their camera footage? May be able to get a tag number.

They screwed up while pulling into the spot and then backed out and drove away?

Sorry to hear that.

I'm an ASU student and was sitting in my Jeep in the parking garage waiting to leave for class. All of a sudden the car next to me starts rocking back and forth. Someone tried pulling in and did the same thing that happened to your car to the car next to me, then they pulled out and took off. I chased them down and wrote down their license plate and called ASU police and left a note for the car.

Just a word of advice for others on here: No matter how old your car is, at least keep Comprehensive insurance coverage on it. My Jeep has it with glass coverage and a $50 deductible. Costs an extra $3 a month with Geico.

That sucks ... one reason I usually park way out in the parking lots and take a short walk.

It is a small country store. No video.

I do that too. I never could see the sense in driving around and around or blocking traffic waiting for a parking spot. More times than not I park on the edge of the lot and am in the store well ahead of those who are waiting for a front row spot.I am inside and they are still driving around aimlessly waiting for that front row spot.

It's one of those things where thinking about it too much will poison your soul.

Stupid person with one hand on a cell phone and changing hand position on the wheel with the other as they try to jerk into the spot.
Old geezer who should've hung up the keys long ago absent mindedly hit your car and left.
Careless punk kid new to driving.

These are just three "movie characters" which will take on a life in your head if you let them.

Then, when you're getting old, they'll pop out as blind resentment etc.

It stinks to be sure.

Sorry for your car. Happened to my car 2 yrs ago at a SuperMart. Same type of hit thought not as deep and along the 2 doors. Cost $1300 to repair. Now we never park up front, even if there's a space. Always look for a spot with an open space either side of us.

Similar left rear damage occurred on our Tuscan about a month ago at a Lincoln dentist office while I was in for an appointment, filed a hit and run report with Lincoln Ne police , and they requested security camera footage, but video picture quality was very very poor and grainy and basically no help at all. It is drivable so I doubt if I will get it repaired. Our Tuscon has extensive hail damage and I do not care what it looks like as long as it gets me from a to b. Still sucks that people will not own their mistakes when they do a hit and run. The correct and proper thing to do would be report it, they are not going to be jailed for an accident... unless they were drunk. I suspect that is why many flee hit and runs.. they are drunk.
