    Never seen before crashed car next door - leave or report?

    Our neighbours have a freshly crashed car on their drive, I've never seen it before even though there are often plenty of people driving in and out of the close (plenty of teenagers with cars). This one is written off, no doubt about it (roof caved in), but it must drive as it's parked bonnet-first on the driveway.

    Looks like a write off, and I'm slightly suspicious that perhaps it has been parked there to hide it from the Police? We rarely get Police around here and being a 'cul-de-sac' of sorts, we don't get through traffic and we're fairly out of town too.

    Would you drop an anonymous call to the Police just in case, or would you leave it be?

    How well do you get on with your neighbours? I would have thought they would be your first port of call.

    In which case just report it then. You'll only wonder "what if" if you leave it.

    I can only assume this one hit a lampost, the bonnet is caved a bit, front screen smashed and the top of the windscreen/roof area is pushed in. Sunroof is smashed too. Rear is OK.

    I got done by an uninsured driver years back, guy stopped and disappeared before the Police came. I'd not like anyone else to be in the same boat if this car was involved in similar events...might give the Police a ring.

    Type the registration the MID insurance database and see if it is/was insured
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
