UPDATE: Our own resident vegan Caroline was on the scene!
I was on the scene! Heard an explanation from the guy who caught the person responsible.
The guy in the white pickup truck creamed the parked Toyota into the phone pole, clipping another nearby parked nearby on the way. He hopped out of the car and booked it on foot, but a 19th street resident watched the whole thing happen from his window and chased down the driver.
He caught the guy as he was getting on the #33 bus, held up the bus driver, and apprised the driver. There happened to be some undercover cops nearby who showed up and caught the driver.
I got there about a half-hour later when the 19th street resident was back on the scene taking a photo of the aftermath as a memento.
(I didn’t have my phone with me or I would have provided more photos of my own.)
Realized this sentence is confusing:
He caught the guy as he was getting on the #33 bus, held up the bus driver, and apprised the driver.
19th st resident caught the hit-and-run driver as he was getting on the #33, and the resident asked the bus driver to stop the bus so the cops could catch the hit-and-run driver.
