Bad accident, Need help.

Anyone who may have seen an accident on Route 29 North approx. 10 miles South of Charlottesville VA, on Tuesday, 8-18-09 at approx. 9:00 AM please respond.
My girlfriend was in a bad accident in her 2004 Focus ZTS 2.3. While waiting for the ambulance to arrive she overheard someone at the scene saying they saw a car cut her off. Unfortunately, this person did not report this to the responding officer and she was too badly hurt to speak to them or get their ID.
Without a witness her insurance coverage is limited and will not cover her medical bills. Having this witnesses statement would make this an uninsured motorist claim which would raise the medical payments substantially.

I know this is a long shot but I need any leads I can get. If anyone has any info concerning this we would be grateful if you could PM me.

Thanks,
David

I know I am not going to be any help ...

But good luck with all that and getting the insurance or someone to help you with her medical bills.

At least for the bit of bright side: You GF is still alive. Also prayers for her steady recovery.

Ouch! Perhaps someone on the scene got the information or knew the person that reported this? I'd still call the officer and inquire into it. Best of luck to you and your girlfriend.

Maybe you could contact your local news station to see if they would do a quick announcement at the end of a segment. It's worth a shot.

Best of luck to you and I hope everything turns out good.

Thanks everyone for the thoughts and prayers.
She's feeling a little better tonight. I'll be happy as long as she keeps getting better but it's going to take some time.
I just put a post on Craigslist.
I'm also following up on the calls into 911. Hopefully something will pan out.

I'm going to pick the car up tomorrow, the insurance co. paid a fair settlement and let me buy it back, spare parts for my ZX3.

Thanks again,
David
