Hit & Run on 8th Street

12/29/2007:

Sometime either last night or this morning, a vehicle struck this Mini Cooper and did some pretty severe damage! Hoboken411 reader Ryan sent these photos in.

“I just went outside to move my car and saw this. Looks really bad. You can see that the Mini was hit hard because it slammed into the truck in front of it and pushed it about 3 feet forward across the white line.”

Ok, it probably wasn’t Jim Leyritz, Mischa Barton, or even Chris Campos… We need another noteworthy “Celebrity DUI” ASAP, because I’m getting bored with this list of offenders already!

This happened to my last year. I was parked very legally on a corner and a truck swiped my car. I was in my apt at the time but someone saw and left the trucks information on my car. It took a year but I finally just got my check from the insurance company.

HOLY CHIT ! THAT POOR CAR GOT WHACKED BUT THEN AGAIN “NOT TO BE SARCASTIC BUT THERE’S A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY I WON’T PARK OFF A CORNER” I FEEL BAD FOR THE PERSON BUT SOME TIME ON THESE SMALL STREETS TRUCKS CAN’T TURN AND THATS WHAT HAPPENS.. WELL HOPE IT WAS A TRUCK AND NOT A DRINK DRIVER..HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL AND DONT DRINK AND DRIVE TONIGHT

The irony. You buy a Mini so you can find a parking spot.

Maybe some of the legal types can clear this up for me. If you are involved in a drunken hit and run and later in the day when you are awake and sober and turn yourself in you can only be charged with hit and run. But in the same situation you stick around and own up to the accident you will be charged with dwi a more severe crime. Is this true?
