    Beer truck hit my esv

    Hello,
    I was going to get my remote start for my 2004 ESV. I parked out front opened my door to get out and a beer truck hit my door. To make it worse the guy kept going. I couldn't get his license plate number due to the salt and snow. Here is a picture. I'll send another one when its fixed

    Call the company and tell the road you was on and tell them the driver hit you and you would like to have it repaired

    It would help if you had witnesses

    Sucks to hear about it though

    If you open your door and someone hits it....it's your fault.

    If your door was closed it wouldn't have happened, your supposed to look before opening. You can be charged for wreckless behaviour or something and could be charged for the damage to the truck.
    So it's probably a good thing he kept going, he's helped you out.

    I went to the police station in the village where it happened. The police officer didn't mention anything about that.

    Oh man, that sucks! I get paranoid about someone dinging my door when I park in a parting lot. Feel for you bro, but at least you didn't get hurt. The truck came up from behind you? If it did, surprised it didn't do more damage than what is in your picture, like bend the door to the front fender
