Can I legally do anything about my neighbor damaging/driving into cars on my property?

Today my neighbor had a visitor, and for some reason she drove onto my driveway and smashed into my parked car, which was parked on MY property... MY DRIVEWAY.

My car is now totaled... it was a brand new car.. and she managed to plow into it so hard it was 1 inch shy of smashing into my garage door. The vehicle won't be fixed because the damages are too extensive.

I called the police and insurance will be dealing with it. He said she will not be charged because it is private property.

But last year another person visiting that same neighbor drove into my sister's car while she was visiting me. A few months ago, just after I got my car, my neighbor decided to cut wood close to my car (but still on his own property) and my car was covered in wood dust and pieces of wood.

Is there ANYTHING I can do legally in addition to going through insurance?

I have a witness and I was told that she was rolling onto my driveway and then stopped, and then all of a sudden she floored the gas pedal and smashed into my car (and the neighbor's car - who she was visiting).

Get a lawyer, sue her for property damage. Do you take lots of pictures? Those are evidences.

This has to be a troll. A first post? "My car is now totaled... it was a brand new car" I find that hard to beleive.

You should smash into your neighbours cars. An eye for an eye.

How could you determine the car is 'totaled' when insurance is still dealing with it.

And why bother posting this in a public forum? Go to a lawyer

Why would she be charged. It’s not a criminal offense.
bottles on me, long as someone drink it

Are you actually suggesting that you think your neighbour is deliberately using their vehicles to ram into and damage your property, and telling their visitors to do so? That doesn't make sense on any level. If they were really so rich that they were willing to pay for increased insurance costs (and pay their visitors to do the same), I'm sure they would have better ways of getting at you, if there was really that level of hostility.
