Default my parked car hit , woman tried to leave

any advice on how to handle this ?
I had my 1950 Ford Custom parked at a local garage and a woman ran into it crushing in the left side door and the rear quarter panel with minimal damage to the front fender.
she then moved her car and acted as if nothing happened.
the mechanics heard the crash and saw her creasing my car from the fender to the rear with her big chrome bumper.
even when confronted , she was only concerned with her car and reluctantly admitted to what the mechanics witnessed.
the owner will call me when he sees her again as her car is still there.
any advice ? should I call the cops ? should i just get her insurance and DL number when I am called ?
my car has no bondo at all and was a perfectly straight unwrecked survivor so slapping some bondo on it is not acceptable. looking for ideas on how to best handle this

Call the Popo and file a report. Get the name and written statements from every witness.
There WILL be evidence, ......paint transfer between the vehicles.
Tell the cops she denied any knowledge .

Call the cops man, I had my car wrecked on me and the worst mistake I made was to assume everything would be made right!

+ a million - call the cops asap. the same woman that tries to deny it once will turn around and deny it to her insurance company and you'll have a pain-in-the-butt time trying to get them to pay. get it on record.

The insurance companies won't even pay attention to you unless there is a police report.

thanks for the advice. I did call the FHP and all he could do was give me her name and insurance co. " state farm" and a traffic crash driver info exchange , at least it is reported.

he asked why i waited 4 hours and i told him i wasn't notified. hope this works out.

Not true. I was hit this spring. We both pulled over and called our respective insurance companies on the spot. No cops called. Her insurance company asked her to put me on the phone, I game them my info they gave me a claim number. Easy as pie.

Yeah but I don't think this lady is going to cooperate like that one did. Hope she does but I'm doubtful
