If someone hits your car it’s such a hassle to get the money and repairs necessary to fix it again, and that’s when the offender does the right thing and stops to give you their insurance details.
What’s even more of a headache is if they drive off and you return to find damage to your car and nobody in sight to own up to it.
This is exactly what happened to college baseball player Andrew Sipowicz. As he looked around to see if he could find any clues as to the culprit he spotted a note on his windshield that explained everything. But the note wasn’t from an adult, it was from a 6th grader who had witnessed the whole incident and couldn’t leave the scene without doing the right thing.
The note came with so much detail and even had an illustration of the offending vehicle.
The note was anonymous but had all the details he needed for his insurance company, probably saving the college student thousands of dollars.
The note reads: “If your wondering what happen to your car. Bus: 449 hit your car. It stops here everyday to drop me off. At 5:00pm. What Happened? She was trying to pull off and hit the car. She hit and run. She tried to vear over and squeeze threw but couldn’t. She actually squeezed threw. She made a dent and I saw what happened. Sorry. Driver seat left door. A lady in the bus driver seat 999.
Buffalo Public School Bus. A 6th grader at Houghten Academy”
The grateful student made sure to show his appreciation on Twitter

His followers were quick to praise the actions of the honest sixth grader and even the 6th grader’s teacher was so proud of his student he retweeted it with lots of praise.
Proud teacher moment. One of my students wasn't afraid to be a 'snitch' and did the good deed. NO THANKSGIVING HOMEWORK! https://t.co/Wu9IG8Q3bf

Then Andrew posted an update saying: “The student who wrote the letter has been found and we’re in the process of finding a way to reward her for her actions. Very grateful for what she did.”
Well done young lady for doing the right thing! She’s an inspiration to us all and her letter is just priceless.
