    ****************UPDATE ON POST 45!!!!!!****************

    __________________________________________________________

    Ok here's the story
    I was driving North bound on Van Dyke in the left lane (divided road with turnarounds) coming up onto a turnaround. There was a rendezvous to my right in the middle lane. There was also an older model Taurus in the middle lane in front of him.

    [​IMG]

    Well suddenly the rendezvous decides he wants to make it into the turnaround and cuts in front of me. I narrowly missed him by slamming on my brakes and whipping around his right side.

    [​IMG]

    What I was not aware of however was the Taurus was trying to follow him. I could not see around the SUV and did not know he was turning also. The bad thing was he was almost past his turn so he slams on his brakes and makes a 90 degree turn directly in front of me.

    [​IMG]

    I ended up in the median with a wrecked car. The Taurus pulls across the street into a Comcast parking lot and the rendezvous stops behind me

    [​IMG]

    It turns out there were 3 car loads of African American gentlemen (at least 9 of them). They all got out of their car screaming and yelling at me. I was on the phone with 911 before I even opened my door. One guy was screaming at me and being held back by his buddy. I'm still not sure why they were angry with me. Well there were about 5 gentlemen standing across the street in the parking lot jumping around calling me names. I was kind of in a shock and didn’t realize they were yelling at me in a negative way. I thought they were asking if I called the police, so I politely informed them I was on the phone with 911 already. Well when I did that, they all jumped in the cars and began driving around the Comcast parking lot.

    In the following image the black dots represent people around my car and the people across the street that were involved in the accident and were yelling at me

    I guess at that time they decided it was a good time to run. They drove around the Comcast lot looking for a back exit (there isn’t one) then they pulled out onto the road with the Lumina close as possible to the Taurus so I can’t see his plate. I ran down the street trying to read their plate, but it’s a lot harder than I thought to catch a plate from a speeding vehicle.
    I was on the phone with 911 telling them that the gentlemen were speeding away from the scene. I told them as much as I could about them and the car and where they were turning.

    My buddy was with me in the car and flagged down a passerby and pointed at my car, then pointed at the fleeing Taurus. The nice gentleman and his wife proceeded to follow the Taurus with 911 on the cell phone telling them where the Taurus and Lumina were going. The response time by the Sterling Heights Police Dept was amazing. They were in the Meijer parking lot within a couple minutes. A police car pulled up behind me and had me sit with him in his car to write a statement. While I was writing my statement in his car, he got a phone call that the fleeing cars were all caught. He asked the witness that followed them which seat the driver jumped into and he told the arresting officer to arrest him for hit and run and "anything else you can find" lol.

    Well on the way home a Sterling Heights police car passed me with 3 gentlemen in the backseat
    I lol'd a little bit

    Here are some pics of the car
    Keep in mind these look a lot worse because the body shop and the insurance adjuster were pulling stuff apart to look for damage. But this still gives u an idea

    I am ok, my passenger is fine, however the car has been totaled and the ins. company is trying to give it a scrap title. I am fighting them on the issue right now.
    They are putting the value at 7,800 whereas I am finding specific examples and kelly blue book at over 10,000 on a regular basis.

I'm trying to buy a Pewter 99 but the guy thinks it's worth a shit load and it's not (v-6, cruise, t-tops, cd, and thats about it for options) with 77k on the odo and he wants 10k.... my offer is at 7. Going to look at a 00 Firebird tomorrow...

    Glad you and your friend are ok, and glad the hitters and runners were caught :)

    Sounds like you know what you're doing, but I've heard people get good results printing lots of auto trader ads about their model car when insurance doesn't want to cough up enough dough.
