Carolyn Anderson says she'll go to the highest authority if she has to, but she won't give up.
The Roanoke County woman's parked car was hit by a Salem fire truck, and so far she has gotten nowhere with her claim for damages.
The law gives cities immunity for such things when providing legitimate governmental services.
Anderson's 1995 Grand Prix was sideswiped while she was attending her daughter's graduation earlier this month at Roanoke College.
The fire truck was responding to an emergency call.
The damage was under 400 dollars, but Salem's insurance will NOT pay it.
