Update- got a call last night from the driver of the white car. (It was a welcome change from the dozens of political robo-calls we've been getting, but that's a different rant...)
She said she filed a police report- they said they can't do much without a witness or information about the bus. Then she contacted the bus company- they denied any of their buses were involved in an accident. Finally, she contacted the school- they gave her my phone number and a copy of the letter I submitted.
She just moved to the area and it was a rental car (with a huge deductible, so the repair is coming directly out of her pocket). So she was thrilled that a witness had come forward so she can now go back to the bus company and police and push for a favorable resolution.
Oh, she said the bus company told her that they had "hundreds of buses" so there was no way to know which one it might have been. Yeah, right- the school doesn't even have hundreds of students!
So I feel much better now about deciding to do something instead of just letting the matter slide, as it looks like it may actually have made a difference.
