Otterberg (Kaiserslautern district) (ots) - While parking on Wednesday, a woman driver damaged the vehicle parked in front of her car. Because the injured owner was not there, the 26-year-old who caused the accident left a note on the car, then left the scene of the accident. Now she has to answer for the suspicion of the so-called hit-and-run.

The injured party only noticed the damage and the note the next day. The 22-year-old had already gone to Kaiserslautern. In the morning she discovered the message on the car. A name and a telephone number were noted on the slip, combined with the request to contact us. The 22-year-old turned to the police.

The officers reached the person who caused the accident at the number given. Although the 26-year-old assured that she would pay for the damage, the woman must expect criminal proceedings on suspicion of escaping from the accident. According to the law, she should have waited at the scene of the accident so that her involvement in the accident could be determined. If the other party involved in the accident is not there, the police recommend that you contact the officers. Leaving a piece of paper that may not be found or that can be lost is not enough. | req
