Certainly hope this gets the attention that it deserves. There needs to be some kind of repremand for this, but sounds like that would come have to come from the state.

Officer Pruitt is not happy right now. I called his captain & lieutinant. They were under the assumption that it happened in a parking lot and didn't know she left the scene.

He had to go back today to the girls house & issue two tickets as well as write up an official txdot accident report with diagram. 

The officer just kept saying that i went over his head.

Well, just what did he expect you to do, take the blame and loss. When one does not do their job as they are supposed to do, you do need to go over their heads. Good for you. I hope this teaches the young lady and the officer a lesson.

I hope you get/have gotten a suitable resolution to this, Cap.  Several years ago I was rear-ended at a light by a drunk driving a duelly (I was driving a civic).  Sheriff's deputies were the first on the scene but were eventually chased off by a state trooper who put the guy in the back of his cruiser for about 45 minutes before releasing him to a friend/family member.  While he was in the custody of the sheriff's deputies, he had to get out of their cruiser twice to vomit on the side of the road.  Following the custody exchange and release, the trooper explained to me that it seemed to be a case of a young man (45 years old at the time) who was an inexperienced drinker.  The guy was never subjected to a breathalyzer and the trooper's report made no mention of alcohol as a factor.  Turns out the guy was well-connected (rich and powerful father) and had a few other "accidents" none of which (of course) involved alcohol.  This info was passed on to the state troopers IAD but went nowhere.  I know the men and women in law enforcement have tough and dangerous jobs, but when the well-connected trash gets to skate like that, it's a little hard to muster any respect for them.

The insurance has now accepted full responsibility for the accident. They are paying for all damages + a rental car.  I am meeting with the lieutenant & captain of the officer in question later this week. I will be filing a complaint against the officer as well with the state trooper involved as a witness.

Here in Texas(as written in the policy) it is the duty of the policy holder to notify their insurance company when involved in a collision, regardless to who is at-fault. It was the grandparents duty to call and notified their insurance company regarding the accident. If all else fails filing a claim to your own insurance is an option. They will pay for your vehicle to be repaired under the "Uninsured motorist property damage" coverage of your policy. The company will then sue the other individual for reimbursement. Then the other party will be forced to notify their insurance company regarding a collision.

Hit and runs offenses range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the seriousness of the accident here in Texas. It's just not good to run. 

Glad it turned out for you. Most of the time things like this do. Having patient and perseverance helps.

Get your insurance involved and maybe look into one of those 'pay nothing' attorneys and don't let that girl get away with it.  Hit and run is a big deal, especially if you are personally injured.  Good luck!

I agree.  Have a friend who po'd a cop in a similar manner and paid for it dearly...several unwarranted tickets from his friends.
