Thanks guys...I will be going to a doctor just to make sure....

@chester22...the sunroof didn't open just the cover inside the car did. The tan piece slide back about 4 inches.

I looked at my bumper as I just got home. Bumper is cracked right through, I plate light is also toast. As for displacing the bumper. It actually still looks fine at the gaps, amazing as that sounds.

I highly doubt they will find the guy. Going to reporting station in morning and calling insurance as well. If I can get some pics tomorrow I'll put them up.

Dang the luck! If you were at a busy intersection or at least in-town make sure to check if there were any cameras (ATM, bank, red-light, etc) to try to get the loser.

Good luck!

Sad news!! Glad you're OK. The good thing about hit and run is that you don't pay any deductible (at least in Québec)!

Well Guy...Qupte is in for visable damage only....

$1350 Canadian for the two pieces of the bumper..this does not include yet anything underneath like the foam or anything else. Good news is I have it booked already for the first week of January. Since in Ontario and this was a hit and run...til they find the other driver I am responsible for my deductable by classified as not-at-fault...therefore no premium changes. If they find driver deductable will be reembersed to me.

With the quote based on visible it will go up. I was rear ended before in a pickup while stopped for a light but I was hit hard enough for the frame to be damaged to the point it was totaled.

I am still dealing with the back and neck pains over a year later. Don't be surprised if you don't feel much pain now it comes on worse in a couple months as the muscles and bones settle in.

I hope the get the bozo.

^^^^Yeah I'm aware the quote will go up but I only need pay the deductable. As for and pains I will be seeing a doctor to be checked out this way if any pains come up they can go back to the claim for it.
