The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.
here are the things that the driver (from Virginia, natch) did wrong (with a photo illustration in case you get confused):
the only good news is that he stopped, and didn’t hit the pedestrian (who was emerging from behind a big lumbering passenger van).
that’s when it got fun.
he blamed the van driver for “letting” the pedestrian use the crosswalk, and then eagerly blew off the damage to his car (you can make out the outline of my license plate on his rear bumper) to get the heck out of dodge.
i double checked The Prius soon after i started breathing again, and no damage to my car — or me, for that matter. he did give me his information after i took a picture of his license plate, but strangely didn’t seem interested in waiting for mine.
wonder if he’ll do that little stunt again.
