Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

I'm afraid I don't understand how or why anyone thought you were involved in the accident. Did the other drivers say you did something? What? And why did your insurance company pay the claim?

Did you lose money because of this?
