PASCO, WA. -- This is a very good reminder as to why we all need car insurance. Late last night in Pasco, a person driving a stolen car slammed into a parked car Monday night. 

The owner of the Ford Mustang all the way on the right side of the picture attached to this story was parked on the side of 24th Avenue. Around 11 o'clock Monday night a man driving the Honda Accord on the left side of the screen went screeching across the street and slammed into the Mustang. 

The Accord was stolen out of Spokane over a month ago. The driver took off, leaving behind two cans of Modelo beer. We talked to Joe Peterson from Joe Peterson Insurance Agency about whether the Mustang would be covered for a collision like this, where the driver of the stolen car, has yet to be found. 

"It is very important that the person who has the parked car, has coverage, which would either be under their collision coverage, or most likely their under-insured motorist coverage," Peterson said. "If they're hit by somebody and they don't know who it is, it's a $300 deductible, if they find out who it is later, it's only a $100 deductible."

Here's a fact that you might not know, more than 20% of drivers in the state of Washington drive without insurance.

As for the hit and run, Pasco Police are looking for a skinny white male, about 6 foot 7 inches tall. The man may have injured his left knee in the crash.
