If the party who caused the accident is not located, then you probably will have to fork over your standard deductible.

This would be dependent on the insurance you have. If you know who hit your car and have all of the pertinent information, you probably should not have to pay the deductible.

Who pays when a parked car is hit by another car that was hit for a running away car?

I believe you are saying one care is parked and is hit by another car that leaves the scene of the accident. If your vehicle has uninsured motorist coverage then the UM coverage will pay to repair your vehicle less your deductible. If later a witness or the offender turns himself in and your company had already paid, the other party will reimburse the insurance company and they will reimburse you for your deductible.

If your parked car was involved in a hit-and-run with damage less than your deductible and you filed a police report do you have to notify your insurance?

No. But they won't pay for it of course. =)

Do you have to pay your deductible if the accident was not your fault?

No. The other person's insurance should pay everything, including your rental car use during the time that your car is being repaired. UNLESS the person that hit you is claiming innocence and there were no witnesses. Then you may have to pay the deductible if your insurance company can not get them to pay.
