I had a similar incident in VA last year. Two witnesses notified me and gave me the plate and a description of the driver and what they THOUGHT was the drivers name based on conversation they heard. I called my insurance and reported everything, expecting to just have to put it down as a hit and run and have my own insurance cover it. Instead, my insurance company was able to identify the driver by the license plate info, and also identify their insurance company (maybe there is some database available to the insurers, I’m not sure). They then contacted the drivers insurance company, who advised the driver of the complaind and that there were witnesses willing to give statements. After a few days, the driver admitted fault and their insurance covered all of it. We did not involve the police at all. Good luck!
