On early Tuesday morning a man driving a black mercedes with his 5 month pregnant girlfriend in the car managed to lose control, and flip it on its top into a yard down the street. Where it promptly caught on fire and the two occupants of the vehicle attempted to flee the scene.

Last night I heard a large crashing noise and thought, "Oh no, the vandals are back!"

No, turns out it wasn't the vandals, it was just another drunken toolbag who had lost control of his vehicle and slammed into the back of a parked car.



The man in the white shirt is the drunk guy, the grey Toyota is his. The silver Honda on the left of the photo was parked where the Toyota now rests. Off frame to the left is a Hyundai Tiburon that the Honda crashed into, which pushed it into the back of a VW Vanagon.

Thankfully nobody was seriously injured and the driver was perp-walked after failing his field sobriety test. I don't think I've ever seen a man chew gum that fast before in my life.

Update, the arresting officer last night just contacted me and sounded giddy that I had a photo of the guy next to the driver's seat of his car.
