Can I get charged for anything if my car was driven into a ditch but there were no witnesses and I wasn't at the site?
Question Details: My resume was in the backseat so the police have my address and phone number but they have no proof of anything. They visited my house the same night in which I wasn't present. They have left me a voicemail which I haven't responded to.
Yes, you can be charged if there is evidence to connect you to the incident. If you have not reported the car as stolen and, in response to any police questioning, do not identify someone whom you had permitted to drive that night (and which person will not effectively contest or challenge that they were driving), then they could charge you: if it was your car and it was neither driven with your permission by anyone else nor stolen, then it logically, even necessarily, was driven by you.
