A car hit back of my car while giving way to traffic and caused about $1000 damage. I managed to take photo of driver's licence and car registration with 000's help, but he drove away before I could get his phone number and car insurance detail. A driver behind both of our cars saw the whole car accident and is willing to be witness. I went to local police asking help to find runaway driver's contact info or insurer, but I was told it's totally civil, they shouldn't be involved. Unfortunately, my car wasn't insured. My questions are how can I find his insurer and lodge a claim against this driver; or what options do I have if he's also uninsured or his not the owner? Many thanks.
