As shown in the video below, my car was parked on the street and it was hit by a Toyota Hiace at around 8:30pm Thursday night.
The guy run away without leaving a note or anything.
I only have 3rd party insurance so I had to fix it at my own cost. I took it to a panel beater for a quick fix - basically put the scratched and cracked bumper back on. It's not ideal but that's all I could afford.
Then I found a Toyota Hiace parked on the driveway of my neighbor's house about 20 houses down. Our street is quiet and there are not many Vans would come to this street at that time. So it's probably people who live in the street.
The van matches with the description and it has scratches and some freshly applied putty to where the van would have hit my bumper. I took a photo.
So I'm pretty sure this is the van escaped.
I'd like to get some advice on what I should do now? Should I just go and knock on the door and hopefully they will admit it? Or do I just send everything to the police and insurance?
I think my 3rd party insurance will also cover me if I can provide evidence that I'm not at fault and the other drivers contact details?
