'Cowardly, pathetic:' Hit and run accident caught on video

By  | 

RENO, NV (KOLO) Joe Boldis walked out his front door Tuesday morning to an unexpected sight.

There in the middle of his northwest Reno street was his car, no longer parked at the curb. Its front end smashed.

"I didn't know what to do so I checked out the cameras. And it looks like the guy was probably drunk, trying to hit the corner and he just smashed into my car. The car was left in the middle of the street."

His security camera recorded it all.

At about 1:30 in the morning a light colored extended cab pickup took the corner wide and fast, slamming into his car.

"I was sleeping. No one heard anything. I checked with the neighbors. They don't know nothing."

"It was a nice good big sized pickup and as he backed up he didn't have much damage and he left and he actually came back five minutes later to see if he left anything and he left."

Boldis' car however is totaled. His insurance isn't covering his loss and he's still trying to figure out his next move.

"Right now I'm just trying to figure it out. I luckily have three days off, so I'm just trying to figure it out. There's no plan. We'll see what happens."

He does, however, have a message for the unknown and unthinking driver of the pickup.

"I think he's cowardly. It's pathetic what he's doing. You should own up to what you do. Now I'm out of a car. I just bought this car, insurance isn't covering it, The police aren't doing anything. It's just not right what he's doing."
