A college student found himself particularly thankful this week when he discovered his car had been damaged in a hit-and-run—and that a young witness had left a detailed note about the incident.
Andrew Sipowicz, a 21-year-old senior at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, went extremely viral after tweeting a photo of his car and the illustrated note he found.
Penned in careful handwriting, the unsigned note declared “bus 448 hit your car” and explained how the bus driver had swiped Sipowicz’s car. “She was trying to pull off and hit the car,” the note says. “She hit and run. She tried to vear [sic] over and squeeze threw [sic] but couldn’t … She made a dent and I saw what happened.”
The note also helpfully provided the time of the incident and a diagram of “the bus that hit your car” featuring stick figure students. “Sorry,” the student wrote.

“Shoutout to the anonymous 6th grader for saving me a couple thousand (Bus not drawn to scale),” Sipowicz tweeted in a post that acquired more than 1 million likes over two days.
People on Twitter were impressed with the detail included in the note.

BuzzFeed News reports that First Student, the company that owns buses in the Buffalo Public Schools district, has already met with Sipowicz and will “cover the full cost of the repair” in addition to firing the driver.
“The actions of our former driver are completely contrary to First Student’s training and what we stand for as a company,” the company said.
Meanwhile, according to BuzzFeed, Sipowicz is enlisting the help of a Buffalo teacher to find the student who left him the note and offer a reward.
