The car is totaled. After the accident I had it towed to the Service King instead of the impound because it was closer. So its basically a temporary storage place for damaged vehicles
The insurance will not pay. The third party kept driving after accident so Idont know who he or she is. At this point Im dealing with the bank. Do you know what their rights are in this situation? What are mine? Do I have to surrender the title? Can they charge off the account even thoughmy payments? Please advis.
