"Dear UU, I was just writing to let you know that the information you have online about the car crash yesterday morning is wrong and incomplete. I know because my car was one of the ones hit.
Here's the story:
At about 4 a.m. September 15, a Hispanic man and two of his friends (all believed to be intoxicated), all in green soccer jerseys were driving west on Lawrence when the driver hit not two cars but 4. Mine, a red Saturn Vue was the first hit, in front of me was a minivan cab, also hit, then two sedans hit so
hard they were pushed onto the sidewalk. My Vue took most of the high speed impact, but all the cars had to be towed off the scene. The driver and his friends left the jeep they were driving stopped across traffic on Lawrence, and fled by foot.
The police had the drivers registration, name, address, phone, license number and VIN number. As of yesterday at noon, they had not found him yet. The police told me they were responding to a shots fired call when they found the crash. Neighbors had reported shots fired, thinking the noise of the crash was gunshots, not a crash. It did in fact sound like an explosion. The body shop is almost sure my car is totaled, the car that was being driven was totaled, and I am guessing at least one or two of the other vehicles will be deemed totaled as well. All in all the drunk driver and his drunk friends really did a great job.
Luckily it was early morning, because there are normally a lot of people outside enjoying the weather in front of the nursing home on Lawrence, and they would have been injured. Enjoy the pics, this is just my car."
