This all feels like a frikin scam!
A few months back in May time, my mum was sitting in traffic that was non moving, unlucky for her, she took her eyes off the road to get some tissue from her bag. She drive's an Auto Honda Jazz that has auto creep built in when you release the brake! Anyways, her version of it was she was at the front of the queue, heading onto a roundabout, but it was chokka, so no movement! Once she had wiped her nose, she released the brake and the car crept forward, and this is when a woman suddenly appeared from nowhere in front of her car picking herself up from the road! So she slams the brake on!!
Anyways, her version of events was she got out the car to see if said woman was ok, she was walking with a limp, my mum has no idea if she hit her or not, but she asked if she was ok, and if she needed treatment or a ride to the hospital? The woman just flately refused help and limped off over the road. My mother didn't know what to do now, so just hopped in her car and carried on the rest of her journey....
... then in July, she gets a letter from the Police asking who the driver of Honda Jazz reg XXXXXXX, on so and so date and time, and this is the first time I heard of the incident personally. My sister dealt with it and supplied a written statement to the police etc.
Then yesterday, she receives a 2nd letter that she needs to make a court appearance for this incident. She's being charged for failing to stop after an accident and failure to provide name and address. And a second charge of beind involved in a vehicle accident and failing to report that accident.
Now my mum is obviously worried as an old person can be, but I'm assuring her she hadn't done nothing wrong, she will be fine.
Anyone with experience can give any input on this?
As far as I'm concerned, she's not done anything wrong, but then I'm biased, as she me mom! But more importantly, the person that my mother was suppose to have hit walked away and not requested details or anything at the scene of the accident, and my mother is not at an age to go running after her.
