Default re: Caught on CCTV: Speeding i20 damages our parked car. How do we track it down?

I live in this area and know for sure that parking on this part of the road is allowed. Its a main road and actually is the widest road in Juhu and there are not any No parking signs over here. Even after the parked car atleast 2 cars can easily move each side, without a fuss.

These kids are high or having fun or their car simply lost control as if they saw a Ghost like the Talaash movie. Period.

I know it hurts to see these kind of things happening around us but sometimes you to got to let things go their way. Even if you are to find this particular car, how would you prove that it was the same car? You do not have their registration number, no eye-witness. Police would not even bother to look/find for someone who has just brushed your car. Our laws are such that a person can get a bail with in a few hours of running over a couple of human beings.

The way I see it, share the video on Facebook/twitter, file a police case against unknown driver, claim for insurance and move on. No point in losing your sleep over some senseless morons.

I recommend you ask this question in the insurance (Automobile Insurance Queries? Ask me) thread but as far as I understand, you can take the arduous way through court and get all the damages covered under the white Hyundai's third party insurance cover. This way, you do not lose your NCB and you don't have to pay anything. However, this is one of those things that might not be worth your time.

I wouldn't be so quick in jumping to the conclusion that cabin lights are led based. If you look at the video you can clearly see that every car's headlights are bright white. Does this mean all the cars in the video are running on 5000k HIDs? Probably not. Secondly, it can clearly be made out that it is a girl driving because as soon as her head strikes the windshield you can see her long hair flailing about. It is more likely that they might have just finished dropping off a friend who called shotgun

Interestingly, the car looks like it has one of those gaudy metallic plates instead of the proper white plates. I'd strongly suggest going to every Hyundai service center personally to see if this car is lying around somewhere and then extract information from the authorities. Such fools with no sense of accountability need to be brought to justice. I understand that they must have panicked because they were drunk but they could easily have left a note with their contact information yet they chose to act cheap.

I don't think it was DUI. A bad case of speeding, trying to avoid an accident and ended up getting into one.

Knowing the mob mentality they did what they thought would save their life. And in this country you can get away with murder like some celebrities so it's better to avoid getting into a mob like situation.

Your option is social media and someone spotting the car. FIR and video for insurance claim and cough up the additional cost.

But by the damage I am surprised someone is quoting 70k.

Poor action but I am just saying we may also end up running away from a life threatening potential situation. For instance the case of the doctor beaten to death.

This seems to be the temple opposite Big B's house on 10th Road. If that's the case, you can file a FIR and request for CCTV footage from the numerous banks on the road starting from HSBC.

Also, Big B or ICICI Bank (opp his house) might have a good quality camera pointing towards the junction from which you could get the car number. Opposite the accident spot is Vijaya Bank and Union Bank (and a fancy building who's name I forgot). Also, slightly down the road are more banks and fancy buildings which are sure to have good quality CCTVs.

But somewhere it all depends on your bandwidth to get this done. Good luck!

Sad to hear about your loss. However, if you check out one comment on YouTube, this guy has provided excellent clues.
Assuming culprits have mobiles, as per the timestamp in the video, get all the mobile numbers connected to towers in the radius of 1km of the accident spot. Eliminate those which were stationary. Shortlist only moving mobile numbers. Out of these mobile numbers owners, find out who have white i20.

My two cents : Even if you get multiple white i20s, check the one without airbags. Looking at the impact, I am assuming airbags should have deployed. But again it could be because driver was not wearing seat belt.

Really sorry to hear about this mate. But after looking at the footage I am not really sure but I see that the girls lost their control after a car comes in between in the junction.

Watch closely mate, it looks like a divider junction. after the auto passes by in this lane, there is another car which is trying to take "u" turn from the other one. To me it looks like the driver of that car failed to notice the onward traffic (the car in which these girls were in) and halts in between. Thats when these girls lost control of their car. They were lucky enough not to ram the car that was taking the "U" turn but not fortunate enough regain the control before ramming into yours.

i also see that the car which stops near by yours watching these girls run is the same car which was taking the "U" turn.Looks like a dezire to me.

Also, I am not sure, But I don't see anything that relates to them under the influence of alcohol or they were at high speed. 2 reasons for that
1)They were really steady. No dizziness even after their head banging the seats and steering wheel.
2) Had they been in really high speed the impact would have been higher, with the air bags failing to deploy(if it had one) the driver must atleast be limping after the crash due to broken leg. they must be at 30-40 kmph for sure.

Sorry for your loss mate, but I think you need to move on and get your ride repaired through insurance. I know it sucks to have to pay such a huge amount for no fault of yours, but surely the damage should not be very extensive. The 70k own expense quote seems to be on the higher side.

Regarding the conduct of the girls, it is inappropriate and the least they could have done was to leave a note. But thats the way the dice rolled, so take it easy, and move on mate.

Regarding all the theories that they were DUI, they were trying to avoid a car that took a U turn, their car did not have airbags, had a particular type of headlight or a particular type of number plate, and the CCTV footage from banks, the tracking of mobile users from the cellular towers, etc... Wow!!! Never thought we have so many Sherlock Holmes fans on Team BHP. You guys are astonishing with your detective skills and more importantly with your observations. But dont you think its a tad too much for an ordinary owner to go to all these lengths for a simple car accident, especially when there is no human injured.

LOL they were "steadily" travelling at 40kph in the night with their cabin light on and headlights off, and fled the scene of the accident with no hesitation. It is not hard to see why its so easy to conclude that they were upto no good

Anyway all the interesting observations aside, as Lalvaz mentioned, they aren't of much help to the OP. The only options he has are to let it go or spend a bit of time and effort like maybe visiting every HASS and even that might not work out in the end either. This is a call the OP must make.

A crash like that is a very effective way to get back to your senses even if you're drunk.
Limping and other injuries may not always immediately show up,probably the driver experienced pain minutes after the crash.

Thanks a lot guys for all the analysis and suggestions. Walked around the area to figure out other cctvs that are installed. Have seen a couple of them and spoken to the guards of the building; will be requesting for their footage today.

Like a few BHPians said shit happens and you got to move on, that's what my attitude is. If I get the footage and the car number it's great, atleast the parents of the kids should know what they were upto. These kids shouldn't feel that they can run away scout free with something serious like this. Also if they agree to pay for the damages that will be my bad luck turning good 😜.

Plan B : If I don't manage to get the car number is to approach the cops show them the footage and let it go. They din't bother much when we showed them the temple cctv which was installed at the scene. We had to get the footage on our own by writing a request letter to the authorities at the temple and they did cooperate immediately.

Will keep you'll posted. Cheers!

Just playing devils advocate here.

Why do you park your car overnight on a public road ?
The reason I ask this is because I live in an area in Bangalore where everyone assumes the road is their private parking space and is a menace to fellow drivers.

When they construct houses they don't bother about constructing a parking space and end up parking their cars on the road.

Drunk or not , had cars not been parked on the road perhaps this person could have regained control of her car and averted an accident

That said , consider this.
Of the various people on this thread giving you advice to "let it go.. let it go.. " , there is a possibility that one of them could be the driver of the car themselves

Hah! The cops wouldn't be bother even if you showed them HD videos of the perp's faces. They just wont watch the video!

My friend had his bike stolen in broad daylight with the bike and perp's faces recorded clearly by HD CCTV cameras closeby. Believe me, that it was the best video footage of the thieves I've ever seen.
Police plainly refused to act on it!

I remember when I got my dashcam, I had to go to the FPO to explain to them what it was, as it was detained for unknown reasons.
When I explained about it with documentation etc. the customs head told me that it was useless and that the footage wont be used as evidence in case of a mishap, by the court!!
what utter BS!

My friends Brand New Jazz was parked on the road outside his office in Mindspace, Mumbai. Some wagonr guy crashed into his car and both the right side doors were damaged. Instead of fleeing, the guy posted his number on the car and also provided the same to the security guard of the building asking him to give it to the owner. We were all very surprised by this. My friend did go and meet him and the wagonr guy apologized stating some cyclist had suddenly come in his way and he lost control. Also agreed to foot the difference amount on the insurance claim. However my friend let it go and since he had zero dep, he only paid 1300 bucks and got the work done.

Good people still reside around us.

I would suggest to let it pass as bad luck, get your car fixed and move on.

Cheers,
Raj
