What happened in this car accident?

If the information supplied on the discussion page is correct, then: Car "B" struck car "A" - (i.e.: If the parked car was parked/stopped/not in motion then the only logical conclusion can be that the the moving car struck it.)- - - - - - -how though that's what i want to know? we know he was parked before collision but don't know weather he was moving out at point of collisionAdd'l comment: "Parked" has a definite meaning (i.e.: stationary-unmoving - standing still). The information supplied on the discussion page NEVER included the possibility that Car "A" was possibly in motion. Not enough information is given to draw a conclusion, although the vehicle with the scratch ("B") was presumably in motion.Turn it over to the insurance companies and let the adjuster figure out what happened - or - if the damage was that slight, settle it between yourselves to avoid raising both your rates.

You hit a parked vehicle. No matter how or where it was parked, you are responsible for the damages. If you hit the car, you could have seen the car if you had been looking. You have no insurance which is a violation of the law. Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked. It is your fault plain and simple.
