Hit and run in parking lot - Ontario
There was a witness who provided the license plate number and description of vehicle, a police report filed, and insurance company notified. I wanted to know what kind of legal reprecautions might there be for the other driver. I don't have their personal info to contact them to discuss not going through insurance (if anyone is able and willing to look that up for me based on license plate number then I would be very grateful). As per the police officer: the other driver did not have to remain at the scene because my vehicle was unoccupied and thus no one was injured. Insurance company besically told me that their investigation would be notifying the other driver and insurance company but if that driver denies hitting my car then I'm on the hook for the deductible (even with a witness and a police report).
Insurance aside, what avenues can I pursue via either the criminal code or the HTA so that this person doesn't get away without any consequences?
