If you are injured, you should go to a doctor to have your injury examined and treated.
You can contact the driver's insurer and file a claim. If you are not injured, the insurer may decline to pay you anything or may pay you the doctor's fees and some small amount of money to settle the case.
As far as the police is concerned, if you were not hurt and this happened on private property, the police is not going to do anything.
If your were injured or the incident happened on public street, you can contact the city's prosecutor. The prosecutor would actually be the one who decides whether to charge the driver with any violation.
You can review your specific facts with your attorney to find out your legal options. However, if you were not injured, you likely will find that few attorneys would take your case on a contingency fee basis.
