Seems GrizzWife was in her car at a stop-light this morning when her car was bumped from the back. Probably no more than a 5mph “collision”.
She and the other driver pulled off into a parking lot and exchanged info. She’s got his home address from his driver’s license, plate # and insurance information. There’s almost no visible damage done to the rear bumper of my wife’s Saturn SL2; with the exception of two small dings created by the bolts from the other vehicle’s front license plate. She doesn’t think there’s any frame damage.
Now, the other fella doesn’t want this to go through his insurance because (he says) that there’s a high deductible on his policy. He just wants to pay out of pocket for the damage. My wife agreed and they went their separate ways.
But my wife wants to tell OUR insurance company about this. I think if she does that, they’ll want the other driver’s insurance info. She thinks that if she tells our insurance company that he’ll pay out of pocket, that everything will be fine.
In the mean-time, she’ll be taking the car to the Saturn dealership to have them inspect for frame-damage and to get an estimate to repair the (hopefully cosmetic) damage to the bumper.
