Hit and run - Did you see a fender bender today?

Since no one added a comment, maybe no one saw this, but just in case, I thought I should follow up.

I called the police immediately when I pulled in, but while I was on the phone, I walked to the back of the car and saw there was no discernible damage, so I didn't want to send them on a chase. I did however start to get worrisome back pain because of the jarring, but it was gone by the next day. So, no real damage, but the woman who hit me could not have known that that when she sped off -- so at the very least, she committed a misdemeanor, from what I gather from the police. Since I am a woman, was not acting angry, and was alone, she had no reason from a self-defense standpoint not to stop as is legally, imagine if she caused a worse accident.
