please don't drink and drive!

on june 21'st we were rear ended by a drunk driver on our way home from vacation. we were stopped at a red light when we got hit. luckily, there was very little damage to our car, and more importantly no one was hurt! but according to the police report the other driver was almost four times over the legal limit! how scary to think of how badly this could have ended.
where it happened:
the damage to our car:
the damage to the other car:
the driver actually left the scene of the crime and tried to hide across the street. we stayed put and didn't move our vehicle, despite multiple people trying to convince us to. we got a hold of a friend who called the law enforcement desk and they sent out a translator and called the traffic police. when we crossed the street to give the police our statement, the guy who hit us ran back over to his car and tried to start it to leave the scene. luckily, it didn't start and the police got him. also, in the report they said it was 100% the other driver's fault; apparently this is really rare, because they normally automatically give you at least 20% of the blame.
