Witness to hit-and-run comes forward with photograph

UPDATE: Annyce Ulanas was reduced to tears this morning as her faith in Toowoomba residents was restored.

Mrs Ulanas approached The Chronicle yesterday, appealing for witnesses to a car park smash to come forward to help file a report for repairs on her car.

The woman who took a photo of a four-wheel-drive which reversed into her parked Subaru Liberty contacted The Chronicle last night, and asked for her details to be passed on to Mrs Ulanas.

"I have tears running down my face," Mrs Ulanas said.

"This is just wonderful news.

"I will ring the lady and see what happens from here."

Mrs Ulanas said she rarely got angry, but the act of leaving a false note on her windscreen was "such an insult".

"This has certainly restored my faith in people," she said.

TUESDAY 3PM: It is bad enough having your car reversed in to in the car park and the driver responsible not leaving a note.

But when a driver makes a show of leaving their registration details on the windscreen for it to turn out to be only a used napkin is worse.

That's the opinion of South Toowoomba resident Annyce Ulanas who endured that exact experience this morning.

Mrs Ulanas had parked her Subaru Liberty away from other cars outside Ray's Outdoors when she went into the shop for a quick purchase.

On returning to her car, she was shocked to find someone had reversed into her car, which she bought for herself following her retirement, and failed to leave any information.

"I'm absolutely livid … I just can't believe someone would do that," she said.

Mrs Ulanas said witnesses had told her a white four-wheel-drive reversed into her car and, having spotted people watching in the car park, made the show of leaving their registration details.

"All they gave us was their breakfast wrapper," Mrs Ulanas' husband Robert said.

The couple was told the small dent would cost in excess of $1000 to repair, and have called on the witnesses to make contact in order for them to file a report.

"A lady got a photo of the car responsible but she left because she thought the driver left their details," Mrs Ulanas said.
