If the driver was unable to give the information above due to not knowning the owner or the driver of the vehicle, I would like to know whether the driver informed a Police officer at any time, and how long after the incident the Police officer was informed, and whether it was more than 60 hours after the crash.

The bus information: Route 26, Bus number 3324, LNB373.
The car information: rego HAA298
