We Don't Have Adventures Like This
A man who was riding on the hood of a car that crashed into the First Insurance Building on Beretania Street last week caused the crash when he punched through the car's window with brass knuckles, hit the driver in the head and grabbed the steering wheel, deputy prosecutor Vickie Kapp said....Ouch. Apparently he is a former boyfriend, and just as well, I guess. Maybe he learned that it is a really bad idea to hit the driver with brass knuckles when you are riding on the hood.
Witnesses told police a man and woman were arguing before a car left the parking lot with a man clinging to the hood. The car traveled west on Beretania Street, weaving across all five lanes, before crashing into the First Insurance Building at the Ward Avenue intersection.
Witnesses said the crash pinned the man between the car and the building.
