HIT and RUN 6:45PM North Bound Lane Solomon Hochoy

Postby kamakazi » August 14th, 2013, 6:54 am

Good Morning
I was the victim of a HIT and RUN last night (13/8/2013) at around 6.45PM on the north bound lane of the Solomon Hochoy Highway at the top of the small hill after the Gasparillo Flyover.
I was Hit and run off the road by a black SUV which initially slowed down after the incident but drove off after realizing the situation

The Vehicle appeared to be a Black X-Trail with a Number plate I believe started with PCC 88##.
I am appealing to anyone who might have seen the plates on that vehicle last night or anyone who might have seen a Black SUV with very recent damage to the front left, front and right side of the vehicle to provide me with that information

I was driving a White EK4 Honda Civic PBP5888

My contact number is 757-8002


My sincerest apologies to all who got stuck in the North bound Traffic that backed up for about 2 miles....the barriers work...i'm alive and thats good...but my car got stuck between the cables, took a bit of time to remove.

[b]Again I am making an appeal to anyone who might have information

So unfortunate to hear that. Most importantly you still have your life bro. I wonder if it was an unmarked Police X Trail..? Very peculiar that the driver didn't stop and render assistance. You can contact the H/Way Patrol @ 627-1177 or Gasparillo Police Station @ 650-2193 to enquire if they got any info about the X Trail. So that they could liaise with Licensing Office to locate the SUV.

I was actually a couple cars behind. Cars started braking and i had to swerve into the other lane. I saw the civic hook up in the cable barriers. A little further up saw a lot of debris on the road and saw the xtrail driving with one if his front tyres unwrapping itself but the driver kept going on the rim. I was wondering why he didnt stop. Didnt realise he hit and run. I would have stopped to help but a family member had a stroke and i was going to the hospital.

I didnt get the plates or see his face good but it looked like a light skin guy. His windows were down. Im sure someone saw him clearly. Neighbors must talk. He drive home on rims with damage.

It's situations like this that makes one consider investment in a dash cam.

Glad you escaped unscathed. Hope you find the perpetrator.

Thank god for those cable barriers; you could have been sent into the next lane, possibly killing you and an innocent motorist.

Also glad you are ok OP.

What do you all think about the dash cam and its effectiveness in picking up a number plate in a situation like this?
If you are hit from the side/rear and the vehicle drives off, what are the odds of getting the plates if you run off the road?

I'm using a dash cam. Just see my recent posts in the "Idiot driver of the day" thread to see its effectiveness. I intend to put one in the back glass as well.

You'll also have to try as much as possible to view offending plates yourself despite the situation and call it out aloud so the cam's mic records it. no guarantees either way, but is worth the effort

@Country_Bookie
Observed vehicle bobing and weaving behind me so essentially remained in the right lane maintaining speed hoping vehicle would pass. Vehicle pulls up half way along on the left lane and continues to bob and weave (Probably doing this to draw a reaction cause this deliberate darting goes on for about 7 seconds). After seeing no real reaction he speeds up halfway in front on the left lane and pulls abruptly to the right and then back to the left, picks up a skid tries to correct and over corrects into the front left of my car taking us both towards the cable barrier. Somehow cable barrier traps my car and other vehicle is able to drive away.
I must mention at no time did i speed up or deliberately slow down to give the other driver a "hard time"

Road was Dry at the time.

Least you're alive man, that's all that counts. Now invest in a dash cam. I think RHD technologies has some in stock. I'm buying from them very soon.

just a question, if you in the right lane, where did you expect the x-trail to overtake you....in the left lane? was the left lane not clear for you to put on your left indicator and try to get into the lane?

Keep left except when overtaking is it not? Anyway, I wasn't there so I don't know the scenario or circumstances other than what you have described.....

Glad that you ok though

I wouldn't sit down in the right lane for an entire journey, that's just wicked....its just when i observe erratic driving i remain in lane cause i do not know how quickly driver wants to go past. Not a right lane hog just probably not overtaking as quickly as others

Keep left except when overtaking still applies. Idiots keep in the right lane "because they doing the speed limit(80kmh)". Steups.
Once yuh not overtaking, get yuh rass out the "overtaking lane".

^^Generally speaking.

OP glad you're ok. Hope you get the culprit.

thought that was the scene..just let the driver go on....but remember you complete your overtaking as quickly and as safely as possibly and get back into the left lane....to avoid any more xtrail kinda scenes....
