At approximately 1 am Saturday morning, neighbors near Pike & MLK were jolted by the sound of a car smashing into a car parked on the west side of MLK at Pike Street. The impact was loud enough to be heard 3 blocks away and hit the parked Volkswagen so hard it knocked the rear wheel sideways. After the impact several neighbors saw the driver try to drive away, then hit another parked car at MLK and Union. Both airbags were fully deployed, and the car was full of airbag smoke. With the keys in the ignition and the engine still running, the driver leaped from the car and ran off, talking on his cellphone as he ran.
After 15 or 20 minutes the police had still not arrived, when I went home. Maybe some other witnesses can further update this.
