|The driver of this Mercedes-Benz SUV, right, damaged a black sedan on Monday morning, according to employees of 24 Hour Fitness, where the accident occurred.|
The owner of a black Acura sedan complained that his car was dented on Monday morning when the driver of a Mercedes-Benz SUV backed crookedly into the adjacent space at 24 Hour Fitness in Paramus.
This morning, gym employees said the two male vehicle owners spoke, and the Mercedes-Benz driver identified himself as a body shop owner who would gladly repair the damage.
My advice to the Acura driver is to call his insurance company, get its recommendation on a body shop and ignore the other driver's offer.
Gym employees said police responded, and made out an accident report.

On Feb. 28, I saw the same two vehicles, and the driver of the Mercedes SUV had backed his vehicle into a parking space, as he did when he damaged the sedan.
He appeared to be a middle-aged Asian man.
