Woman says she was charged with hit-and-run after driver told him to leave
A driver says she accidentally hit someone’s car and was told not to worry until police showed up at her home about a reported hit-and-run.
TikToker Aaliyah (@corndoghater) posted the video on April 7th, which amassed over 308,000 views as of April 11th.
In the video, Aaliyah shows a picture of police near her driveway. The text overlay reads: “When I accidentally hit a car last night and the person told me I was fine going home. The cops were at my house because it was reported as a hit and run.”
The caption reads, “Always change car insurance, even if they say no.”

In the comments section, viewers gave tips on what to do in the event of an accident.
“Always call the police. Even if it’s something small. People are shameless and will try to get money from you,” wrote one commenter.
“I would wait for them to leave first and take a video of them to show they left because they cheated,” said another.
“They always call the police and wait for them. I exchanged insurance and numbers and took photos but the person still reported it as a hit-and-run,” added a third.
Others shared their experiences with drivers trying to commit insurance fraud.
“A woman once let me go after I banged on the bumper of her truck and then filed a claim with her insurance company saying I ruined her alignment/steering,” said one user.
“They caught my dad too and now they claim to be hurt,” wrote another.
The Daily Dot contacted Aaliyah via TikTok comment for more information.
