Open tailgate | Damages to other vehicle?

I did not realize my tailgate was open and my ice chest fell out.

Some one was honking and let me know. I realized she was following me then got stuck at the traffic light, we lost each other.

What if the ice chest hit her car, what are the consequences if she has my lenience plate number and makes a police report?



You are probably liable for the damages that the chest caused other vehicles. They could contact you to process the claim.

There is a possibility that if they call the police, they can argue that you left the scene and give you a ticket. This is unlikely, but again, your question is speculative.
