Ask the Car Insurance Expert
My neighbor let someone drive her car. They backed out and hit my car. What can I do? The police were called and she admitted letting him drive her car but she can’t seem to remember the guy’s name and he ran when police arrived.
She . . . what? Let some stranger off the street drive her car? That's one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.
In the end it doesn't matter who the guy was. Make a claim against your neighbor's auto insurance policy for your damages. Her rates might go up due to this incident. Maybe next time she'll try to get the guy's name before she hands him her keys.
