Guy just backed into me in the gas station parking lot. I was so pissed I forgot to get his insurance company name. So just a reminder, write down EVERYTHING and take pictures of everything. Or call the cops. Whichever

So is there a way for me to get his insurance company name? I have his license plate, policy number, and name. I called my insurance and the lady said she thinks they can get it, but I'll have to wait for a claims person to call me tomorrow. The white truck is his Photo

That blows ,even though it's not a horrible amount of damage ,it sucks when It come time to sell or trade in and it has an accident on the record.

Damn Colin, that's number two already. You must have Newmann luck...

By the way, they come in threes.blush

Just stay on your insurance company and make sure they follow through. On private property though, his word against yours. Unless he insists that he ran into you, insurance companies can be the occasional twats.

I'll be keeping this truck long enough it wont matter. Need at least 4 more years out of it. At that point itll be >=200K miles.
Does suck though. New paint usually isnt as good as factory paint and I dont wanna be dealing with chips later on

I cant wait for the 3rd, of course I could use a new bed. I've done tore this one up throwing shit back there pinch

Nobody has video, but I got a statement from the manager who watched it happen, and her name/phone number. So I got something to back me up in saying it's his fault.

It's basically up to the insurance companies. Hopefully the dude in the white truck is honest enough to own up to it and your insurance co. goes to work for you.
Calling the cops wouldn't have done you any good. Gas stations are private property and cops have a severe case of SEP near them. (Someone Else's Problem.)

I'm trying to be positive here. Guy B says too many of you are negative, at least I know he isn't talking about me.

Don't know your state laws but you'd be screwed in Kansas. No Fault here. If it happens on private property (gas station, wal Mart)....you pay for what others do to your vehicle. Cops just shrug and walk away.

Yeah I'm not real sure the legality here. I'm from Georgia, happened in texas. Either way, he pulled out of a pump up to the stop sign. I came up behind him, and another car came up behind me. He then threw it in reverse and well... the hell could I do? Guess he was trying to turn around and couldn't be bothered to check his mirrors.

In California it would be your fault for having insurance and flaunting your provlege. The other guy gets your truck, house, and you have to put his kids through college.

Been towing and repoing part time for years. If your not at fault, I always recommend calling the police for a report. It helps out for little shit like forgetting who "she" is insured with. Keep that in mind on Newman's law #3.

Your insurance company should be happy to do the dirty work, they HATE to pay for stuff lol. You can still go to police department and let them know of the incident and that you wasn't able to retrieve all info and take the witnesses whatever in as well. Insurance agencies don't always employee the most qualified and can set around for awhile before someone who can and will have it handled does so. You having the tag number, that local pd can help you out with his info. Texas pd can do more for you then us. Good luck crash and stop kicking puppies.devil

Depends on your state. I got backed into in a parking lot in Vegas. Got his name and insurance info and just to make sure I took a picture of his license plate. Turned the info was bogus and my insurance agent said in Nevada they couldn't run his plates to locate him. I was screwed.

My wife calls you guys the Yahoos.

VIN# is 1GCHC23667F509698 and here's a list of when/where his truck got inspected, looks like the current owner(the asshole) uses Fairfield Quick Lube.

Fairfield Quick Lube
456 E Commerce St, Fairfield, TX 75840.
(903)389-1996

Maybe call them and pretend like you're buying the truck and see if you can get some more info?

Would they have insurance information from inspections?
And thanks for figuring out that sticker! I found his facebook but I dont wanna let him know I have it until I get his phone number/address etc. He might have posted his number in that group

Is Colin on his first World Tour with stops in many cities? Headlining or opening act?

|

7/13/2018 9:28 AM

Probably not his insurance info, but maybe his phone number if he’s gotten service their before. My mechanic has my phone number on file so I was thinking if you asked for the service records on his truck his phone number may be attached. Or maybe just be straight with them and see if they’ll give it to you. Going on a limb I know...

130 County Rd 111 Fairfield, Texas may be his address. Not positive, but there’s 3 white trucks in the driveway from the satellite images. Might drive by there if you’re going to be in the area again.

I’m not positive that’s the same guy, but may be worth checking into. I’d just do a drive by and see if that truck is there if you’re still in the area.

The owner of that address above(Carrie) recently purchased property with an address of 160 FCR 121 in Freestone County, TX, which looking at records appears to be a mobile home on 10.89 acres. She bought it on 2/1/2018, and I'm guessing Carrie is the mom and maybe she bought the mobile home for Ryan?

Also, try this number: 361-436-0403.

one time a few years ago i was sitting at a stop sign and had a guy run into the back of me, i get out and look and i had my trailer hitch on and it went right through his grill and fucked up his radiator. my truck was completely unscathed. he gets back in his car to grab his information, puts it in reverse and takes off. fucker. i didn't pursue because no damage, but shit man...
