      A Civic with those graphics and a fart cannon exhaust makes me think reckless driving may have been involved... I may be biased, though.

      Thanks everyone! As of 10 pm 7/10/11 the car's still there, and I learned this happened when a guy was drag-racing around 4:30 am. He survived with no head injuries but both legs broken!

      Is it bad that I'm glad he has two broken legs? It's kind of like when the Jackass guy died in a drunk-driving crash.

      Not at all... we should all be celebrating the fact that the streets are a teeny bit safer for the next couple months while you-know-who is sportin' plaster pants.

      Actually, he was aiming for the sign.

      Brad Cornelius They'll be safer for longer than that...this doofus is looking at a revocation of his drivers license for at least a year. Karma would be for his revocation to start after his legs heal. He will have to get re-tested as well. Some of those examiners can be pretty tough cookies...

      This looks like the incident involving a 16 year old stole a running SUV and CPD chased him. The driver of the black car by the hydrant was a 911 dispatcher from OEMC and she is dead. The car in the bricks was parked and got launched into the building during the crash.

      I just checked and this is a DIFFERENT one. Wow, it does get goofy at times driving on North Avenue.

      ^ I didn't realize it was this exact corner building(strangely enough), till I looked at the youtube video. Wow! And also to think after seeing koc's pic of a crash in Nov. 2008, that this building has had 2 crashes hitting into it, within 11/2 years.

      That is as impressive as it is pathetic. I mean, it takes EFFORT as well as stupidity to do that.

      Too much car, not enough driver. Any idea what they ramped to get so high?
