this morning I noticed a few scratches on my car and I thought maybe I had rubbed up against some snow but I took a closer look and the scratch was much larger than I thought. the wheel fender part is also dented in. I do not remember doing anything reckless or hitting anything. Would my alarm have gone off from this damage? and what can I do about it?

I have my dashcam set to motion detect so hopefully it'll turn on and catch a frame with the license plate of the car.

Looks like a shopping cart. Try buffing it with a cutting pad and polish

Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about it but move on and get it fixed.

I see you're in Virginia. If you want to get insurance involved, at least you'd fall under Virginia's Hit and Run/uninsured motorist law. Regardless of what your deductible is, under the law all you pay is a $250 deductible to get your car fixed.

What is that exactly? I'm curious....

OP, that really sucks! I hope that you can get it fixed properly.

We can all speculate on how it happened. I had a women trying to park her SUV once hit my car and drive over my tire and rim and it caused a scratch similar to this. I would say you need to get it checked for sure because if there is hidden rim damage that can be dangerous.

as for the visible damage that definitely needs a respray to fix. those wont buff out.

The dashcam would start recording when a car comes near his F30 and it would capture the other driver's license plate number. Many dashcams have 2-channels and two recording lenses (one on front and one on the back)

I have a motion detected dashcam myself due to incidents in the past. It's a blackvue DR550GW-2CH. It has motion; thus it starts recording if a car or person comes near my. It has 2 channels and two cameras (front and rear) with 140* angle of viewing.

If you have a wide-angle lens the FOV might be just enough for it to catch the license plate near the edge of the video. It would basically capture it as they leave the scene. Not 100% but better shot than none.

How the hell did anyone survive before the Internet?

OP - call your insurance company and get it fixed.

Fuck everyone who does this.
Happened to one of my friends not a long while back. Unfortunately for him, his wheels were turned, so when the guy hit him, it seriously messed the alignment of the right wheel... Looked something like this /----| after that.
Again, hit and run...

Feel for you op, but what can you do...that's what insurance is for :|

If the place you parked has security cameras in the parking lot, talk to their security guys and see if you can review the video. You should be able to see what happened, but unfortunately it is very difficult to get a plate off one of those cameras unless they have a special camera just for that.
