Out of control driver

Over the live police scanner now..

Some rental van/truck has hit multiple parked cars along Hudson St. between 3rd and 2nd, reportedly driving away.

One officer indicated the cars near 2nd and Hudson were “demolished”.

They found the driver a few minutes ago, and he didn’t even have a real license.

Where’d he learn how to drive? Cooking school?

Very well could be. It could also be a citizen with a suspended license, or a citizen who didn’t have their license with them, or a citizen who doesn’t have a license.

If the driver didn’t have a “real license”, I think it safe to assume that they weren’t talking about the fact that he had a junior operator’s license…

“Not a real license” to me implies that he tried to use some sort of “Matricular Consular” or other pseudo-identification document that the Government of Mexico hands out to its exports at their consulates.

If he did not have a real license than there is no way he could have rented the truck if it was a rental truck. That tells me it was probably a professional moving truck being driven by someone who did not have a valid license because they are not a citizen.

i dont have the facts, but i would guess he’s an illegal alien.

Hey Colon, sounds like strand’s world is a realistic one to me. Its nothing less than an epidemic.

There are still 2 cars on Hudson betw. 1st and 2nd that are bashed up with parts on the ground. However, they are hardly demolished. Both definitely look drivable, but will probably need a couple grand in repairs.

They still have notes on the windshield so apparently the owners have not found them yet. Maybe they’re reading Hoboken411 and thinking, “Whew! Good thing I’m parked between 1st and 2nd on Hudson, not between 2nd and 3rd…”

I wonder if these are the same ones that were supposedly betw. 2nd and 3rd, or if these are additional ones that the truck hit.

If the driver was illegal you can be sure he has a north carolina dr. lic.. For some reason these illegal get n.c. lic. and get plates from n.c.,why is it so easy???
