Reader-submitted video: Asking the driver to come forward

Reader-submitted: I went to a bris Thursday morning at Rabbi Shachar’s shul around 8am, and parked my car on East End Avenue.

There was a space in front of me and a white van came and tried to park in that spot. They hit my car and left without acknowledging that they hit me.

You can see in the video (the time is wrong) before and after. There is damage to the front and side of the car. It is possible that they didn’t realize that they did it. I figure if someone sees the video, they will recognize the van or that it was them and will come forward.

  1. The car doesn’t seem to have been hit by the van in the video. Maybe you need to review the video earlier in the day. Maybe it happened at a different location.

  2. No one asked me and tzvi do u 2 by any chance own a white van???? Look at the video again u can clearly see the difference b4 the van going in and after. U even see sort of a jump in the screen the moment of impact

  3. I f you watch the video in full screen on a computer, you can see that right before the van comes, the front left bumper of the car is smooth and good. After the minivan passes, you can see in the video that the bumper corner looks crushed in. You can’t see it on a tiny screnn, only when enlarged.

  4. If you pay very close attention at the back wheel of the parked car, you will notice the car DOES MOVE when the white van pulls into the spot.

  5. I had the same exact story at that same location smeone took my mirror off and kept going I had a Toyota sienna it happened right b4 Purim 2yrs ago maybe culprit will come forward as well it cost 185to fix
