    Last night my ex-wifes car was hit, while parked, by a UPS truck. By the note left by a witness, the driverless UPS truck rolled into the car, pushing it sideways into another parking space. The driver must have returned to the truck and seen the accident, but just left.

    What is the normal procedure in something like this? Shouldn't the driver have alerted someone? Isn't this Hit and Run?

    Double park? The car was parked in a parking space. This wasn't on the 'street', it was in an apartment complex.

    If it was my car that got hit...I wouldn't call the police and file a report. I would argue with strangers on the internet.

    No rumor. Witnesses. Police are currently interviewing driver of truck. He will be charged with Hit and Run. Next time guys.. use your emergency brake and don't leave it in neutral.

    Thats why I was asking. There is no procedure or number to call on the UPS site. Police are now handling it. Good news for you guys... theres going to be an opening in the NJ office.

    I understand you're looking for some detailed insight on the matter, but you're not likely to find that here, especially when it can cost a fellow UPSer his job.

    The answer to your question(s) is fairly common sense. She files a claim through her insurance provider and explains what happened. She also calls UPS and does the same. It'll be up to those two parties to work it out.

    If management investigates the issue and finds damage to the UPS truck in the same spot that struck the vehicle, the driver could be terminated on the spot or written up, depending ...

    What is sadder is you guys work long overnight shifts, driving all day and making deliveries and then you come on here and talk about UPS.
