How was the car plated when in the accident? Why did you not properly transfer title and keep a copy?

I wish to inform you that you can present the evidence of person in front of whom you have signed the car. In this regard the evidence of person can prove that there has been sale. Further if you have received consideration for sale through check then that can be additional evidence of sale of car. You can inform court that sale proceed at around the time suggested by witness proves sale beyond reasonable doubt.

#2 Sincerely i signed title in front of son -in-law who in turn was giving the title to his co worker who was buying car. He never made copy of title. I have all my documents of surrending plates and the address drivers license number and his name the new owner who brought car.

You will need to present compelling evidence you don't own the car. As it is still titled to you, your negligence may backfire. Good Luck.
