No he did not call the police, he was not even a witness or part of the accident. He was called by the driver who was a women that probably could not speak english, I assume. He did all the talking. No my father was not cited for any traffic offense, no that I know of. The police was not called, it was a confusion and a blackmailing I would say.
Did you get my last post? I am waiting for an answer or if I should rewrite
The damage to the car, we could fix it as it is really not that bad. But what we are concerned about is the attitude tricky and blackmailing of this person. He asked us to call him today. I know that after the scene he was heading to his insurance company to report...so I wonder if there is even a need to talk with him because he is so strange. My father is an upright person and wanted to take responsibility of the damage and fix it with no problem but the guy with his attitude by recording conversation, taking picture of my father while signing the document is kind of troubling to us and we want to know what you can advice us with regard to him in order to protect ourselves because I am afraid he will be asking us more than repairing the car's damage because he probably wants money in a dirty way by intimidation and blackmailing us. How do we deal with that? thanks!
