Being involved in a hit and run accident can be frustrating. Your best chance for finding the driver is to collect as much information as possible (e.g. the color, make, model of the car and license plate number if available). If you are physically able to do so, gather as much information from witnesses as you possibly can as this information could help police in their search for the hit and run driver and make filing an insurance claim much easier.
If the police are unable to locate the other driver (and you were not injured in the crash), your next step would be to file an uninsured-motorist claim for property damage with your own insurance company.
If you were hurt in the accident, be sure to consult with a personal injury attorney about your potential injury claim as these are handled very differently from property damage claims. In addition to an uninsured motorist claim, you will likely wish to file a personal injury protection (PIP) insurance claim as well. A PIP claim will give you near-immediate access to needed cash, and are considered “no-fault” claims. This means that your insurance rates should not increase due to a PIP claim.
