    I was walking home in a rural area near a T intersection while crossing a bridge. Out of the darkness came an suv that blew the stop sign and took the turn way too fast. It veered into the shoulder where I was standing. I said in my mind this car is going to hit me. I jumped up hit the windshield/hood and bounced off landed on the asphault. The driver got out and the first thing he said was"why were you in the middle of the road?" This actually upset me more than the accident. I felt rattled but said I was going to live. He peels away and witness who saw the whole thing gets the license plate and calls 911 saying a car blew a stop sign veering off the road, hitting me going 25mph, she is completely disgusted with the driver. Cops, paramedics all show up but I refuse treaatment. Its classified as a hit and run. Currently they are searching for the car/person. I feel drained from the initial shock, but otherwise okay. Where would you go from here?

    Think you could take them in a fight? That would eat at me until I did it I think.

    Ummm, WTF? Where would I go from there? A hospital. Then a lawyer. You screwed up by refusing medical treatment. You were the victim of a hit and run. Do you know the gold mine that you are sitting on if the cops find the driver?

    Glad you're ok TS.

    You may want to get checked for a concussion to play it safe. You never know what you don't remember injuring with all the adrenalin flowing.

    Like Charles Brown said, you shouldnt've refused treatment from the paramedics. THEN you should've called a lawyer. You might be the one getting sued. Far better to be safe than sorry.

    that son of a bitch :mad:

    i semi-got hit by a car once. i was on my way to the train station, i was crossing the street as it turned yellow. before i could get to the other side, it turned red, and some asshole didn't even bother to check if anyone was still in the crosswalk, so he took off. i jumped and got out of the way for the most part, i just pushed off the hood with my hand as he hit the brakes, but my stuff went flying, including one of my shoes. i sat there in front of him for a couple of seconds giving the guy a dirty look and shaking my head. then i went to pick up my stuff slowly. he opened his window to tell me to get out of the way and i cursed him out. i waited to see if he'd stop out of his car, but he drove off like a bitch.

    your incident sounded much worse, ts. i hope you didn't suffer any serious internal injuries.

    OK. You don't have insurance. So, if your neck or your back starts hurting you tomorrow, what are you going to do about it? If it turns out that you have a minor rupture to an organ, what are you going to do? You're going to be screwed, that's what. If you would have went with the paramedics, it would have all been on record that your injuries were sustained in this hit and run accident. Then, no fault or the state would have handled the brunt of your bills until the asshole driver could be found.
