However, the detective’s expression was rather strange.

When Natalie saw it, the initial joy she felt melted away slowly, and her heart became uneasy. “What’s the matter?”

“Ms. Smith, we found no record of your mother’s car hitting anyone. However, records showed that your mother was at the scene of the accident involving Mr. Thompson and his wife eighteen years ago.”

Natalie’s pupils constricted, and her lips trembled. “Just being at the scene does not mean that her car hit anyone, does it?”

“That is true. Nevertheless, an eyewitness testified that her car had indeed hit someone at that time, and she was taken to the police station for questioning. Later, Mr. Thompson bailed her out so, in her records, there was no record of hitting anyone with her car,” the detective explained.

There was no record of her hitting anyone with her car because David had bailed her out.
