So sorry to hear. I hate it when people chicken out like that and
don't call to apologize.
If it makes you feel any better, I was about to leave the office to go
to the Post Office when I found out that my '93 V8 had been hit so
hard in the driver's rear corner that the whole car had moved 45
degrees. Plus sheet metal damage, broken bumper cover and a tendancy
to want to veer right...
I am not happy either.
