This is probably the first recorded instance that a driver of an 11Foot8 crash completely leaves the scene and his rig behind for the cops to sort out.
“And just where do you think you’re going?”
A car involved in a fatal hit-and-run in Cheektowaga, New York escaped, leaving only blurry video, a small plastic part, and frustrated police. If there’s any group of dorky gearheads that can help, it’s this group, so let’s see what we can do.
I watch some gaming YouTubers. Craig here is one of them. On the 17th of February, him and a friend were allegedly legally crossing the road somewhere in Los Angeles California when a Toyota Tacoma of unknown age and color ran a red and ran them down. They’re both in bad shape, his friend Jay is still in the hospital…
What’s that you ask? Just cougar hair on the front bumper of a z06. Smooth. How the damage was that little is beyond me. This car has now claimed 2 lives over 100 lbs in the last 2 years.
Apparently he drives a semi and smokes rocks...
From the responding officer, at 2:30 this morning- “Just wanted to keep you updated. I found the suspect vehicle and got a confession from the operator.”
Edit: Big thanks to Nibbles and to Fardoche for driving it home. Definitely seems to be a Chrysler 200, I’m forwarding the information to the officer. Thanks internet, for solving the issue in less than an hour as per usual. Best Community.
Canada being Canada. Everyone just stands there silently........
Like Artoo, I was very sad at something I had to do tonight in Downtown Austin. While walking back to my car, I was passing Little Woodrows when I see a Lexus RCF and 911 Cab, which were sandwiching a big, beatup white pickup truck. At first I paid the truck no mind, as I was too busy checking out the RCF.
So remember the otherwise nice BMW that I mentioned needing to sell yesterday? Yeah. Fucking Hit & fucking run. I never park in this spot. Park in it two days in row and this is what I get, I guess. People suck.
As most of you may know, I live in Austin, TX. I am originally from Rhinebeck and Kingston, NY. Different cultures, different driving styles, different on many levels. Not only am I rabid car enthusiast, I am also a long time cyclist. That’s right, I’m one of those spandex wearing, leg shaving guys on a bike worth…
He was transferred out of the Critical Care Unit on Sunday, and was removed from the ventilator to breathe on his own the Friday before that. It has felt great to get to speak to him again, he is definitely tired though, and needs tons of rest. He won't be quite himself until he is more recovered. He says he hurts…
Friday I was asking all of you to help me identify this part for the german police, in order to find the person that ran over a 16 year old boy in the middle of the night and left him to die.
The images below show a vehicle about to hit a family's dog, the incident itself, and the result of his negligence. I know Jalopnik usually gets all the publicity for helping catch the criminal, now it's our turn.
Video seems pretty self-explanatory. Guy hits cab, cab driver gets pissed, tries to stop the Murano. Murano tries to run, ends up making the situation much worse (watch what he hits first).
Update 11/8: The car has been found it's a 2002 Lincoln LS according to the translated article.
Parked a few streets away from my school on a residential road and I get back to my car to find this:
From Hit and Run
We had a hit and run this Tuesday night that took the life of 43 year old Kimyonis Palmer. The only clue is a teal paint chip. Any ideas?
