Ambulance came and left with her and I don't even know if she was alright :/
My dad was rear-ended by another moterist on his drive home from work a couple years ago. Luckily it wasn't a serious collision, but the other driver drove off after hitting my dad's SUV, which ment my dad had to go into the nearest police detachment & report the accident as it had left some solid dents and a broken tail light on our Jimmy.
He was able to get the licence plate of the idiot who'd hit him, filled out all the paperwork with the officer who was helping him and finally got home by about 7:45/8pm! (my mum was worried sick when my dad called home from the police station!)
We got phone call from the officer who'd taken my dad's report a few days later. They caught the driver, who was under suspension, driving not-his-own car and didn't have any drivers insurance!
The cop was actually kinda laughing and told my dad, "yep, this guy is pretty screwed!"
I've been bitten by a black widow spider myself which wasn't much fun...
But luckily though, my immediate family has managed to avoid any messy deaths and so far everyone's lived to a decent age and gone fairly peacefully.
