Spot news at dinnertime

leave a comment »

My roommate and I were trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight when we heard a loud crash and rushed outside to see the aftermath of a head-on collision right outside our front door. It’s a busy street so it wasn’t a huge surprise. At first glance, it didn’t seem like it was that bad; then the driver in the car at fault took off on foot to escape the cops.

Turned out he had rear-ended someone (oddly enough a copy editor intern from the Courant) and was trying to pull a hit-and-run by driving on the wrong side of the road. He didn’t get far. Here’s a shot of the cops extracting the driver.
