Rentals have insurance. Did you get a plate? It is illegal to not give information at the scene of the accident.

just goes to show fucking Jawas are built like a tank this is my 3rd accident (first ride lost control on trolly tracks when wheel went in the grove, and dropped it on a tight turn in the rain) and it runs like a champ. noticed some idle issues it wanted to stall this morning probably just needs to get re-tuned ill see what i can do after work

Maybe the dying kid's wish was to run over a guy on a moped

Always get information

It was a mistake for you not to exchange information because

1) what if you were injured and dont feel it yet

2) your moped may have been damaged more than you realize (for instance broken axle, bent rims, other things

3) they need to be held accountable
