2 weeks ago, i got hit on my bike in the crosswalk. without looking my way, the driver turns right. hits me hard and i fly over the SUV, hoping not to get hit by another car in the next lane. i jumped up and fell back onto the corner of the pole. i laid there looking at my bike in the intersection, blocking traffic and no one to help or say nothing. i had no choice. limping to get my bike. i was in shock. then the driver asked if i was okay. i felt alone and tried to leave. Seen, that a with a few cars stopped attending to her. giving her, there info. telling her if he tries to do something later. will say, he said, he is okay. i asked for a wrench to fix my tire. no one, responded. finally i yelled out, i didn't even ask for her name. she asked if i need anything. i laughed, and left

You should have reported this to law enforcement immediately. It is not good for your case that two weeks have passed with no report to the police. Also, you say that she asked you if you needed anything and you laughed and left. From your own description, it sounds like this was not a hit and run since you were the one who did not cooperate. That being said, someone should have notified law enforcement immediately. Perhaps you did not realize the seriousness of the situation immediately. Perhaps you felt angry and frustrated. Regardless, submit a report to the police and get your injuries treated. I hope your were wearing a helmet. Please be careful out there.
