UPDATE: Just got the nicest voicemail ever considering the circumstances from Michael, the owner of the car pictured and the man most certainly NOT TO BLAME in this incident. Michael tells us he awoke to find his car in this condition. SPD believes a driver in another vehicle slammed into Michael’s car and knocked it on top of the poor little moped. The investigation continues and, Michael tells us, TV media are on the case and will be talking to him for the night’s newscast. Thanks for the call, Michael.
Original post: Every scooter rider on Capitol Hill will see this picture and say, “See!? That’s what I’m talking about right there!”
We’re not sure exactly what lead to this awkward parking job on 12th Ave early Saturday morning. Here’s what tipster Brian heard:
I woke up early this morning (maybe 3am) to a loud crash and rumble. Looked out the window and saw this wrecked Saturn sitting on top of a scooter. Unfortunately I don’t have details, just that it appears to be a hit and run on 12th Ave E between Harrison and Thomas.
SPD shows only an “accident investigation” in the area for the time period. Oops. An accident, indeed.
Thanks to @wonderwanderers for the picture.
