Wow, see when people start making personal comments about you that you're irrational and emotional it kinda makes you want to report it to the police just for the hell of it. Even of there's not much damage, I'd let them know that the neighbour wasn't paying attention when driving.

You call this irrational???? I will show you irrational!! Then go to town on their car with a golf club!
I would be really ****ed off about their response!

I am gobsmacked by their response! Completely ridiculous I would be peeved off too!

I would now be involving the police.

I don't think involving the police would make the matter any better...
Let's not forget that they are the OPs neighbors so chances are that she'll have to deal with them on a regular basis...
OP was there any damage to your car? Not that it makes the issue go away if there was none... More so that I would pursue this a lot stronger if there was.

Take photos. Take down details of the day including conversation. Ring insurance company and see what they say. If you have a mechanic get them to check it over.
Our car was backed into one night by someone we knew when DH was using it - a loose aquaintance. They didn't see it apparently so it was a decent hit. The bumper got a bit cracked and paint damage of course. BUT! It was what we couldn't see that was the problem - it also put a small crack in the radiator, so later that week the temp suddenly sky-rocketed and the motor went all within 100m of travel. We were then out-of-pocket $2000 because DH couldn't have been bothered to inform the fellow what actually happened from the hit and claim it on insurance.

A neighbour I didn't know that well? I would have waved them out, and apologised profusely, offered to pay for damages and explain that I was in a hurry. Ask them to chat to my partner (if he was there) or to call me. Or stay and work it out if they preferred, calling whoever I was rushing off to, to let them know there had been an accident.
If I was the neighbour? I'd expect acknowledgement and one of the above.

Just read your update.
Write everything down- their names, house number, car reg. Make sure it was def him.
Report to police. He drove away from the "scene" and that is illegal. You tried to deal with it calmly and neighbourly, and were slandered. Give the police his details (numberplate especially) and photos of your car.
GET a MECHANIC to give your car a look over... you never know.
