Hello! You do not have to speak with the police with regard to the accident or to the damage to your car. If it truly was a hit and run they would most likely cite release you, which is what you are referring to as "paper arrest." However, based on the fact that it occurred so long ago, I would find it hard to believe that they are going to press charges or be able to make a case with such little evidence
