"SUV Crashes Into Construction Zone"

The crash isn't very strange, but the getaway is.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- A sport utility vehicle crashed into a construction zone on the city's north side early Wednesday.

Police said a man was speeding on Highway 281 North near Jones Maltsberger at 1 a.m. when he crossed into a lane blocked off by barrels and crashed into a parked dump truck.

The driver took off and left his passenger behind, police said.

Assuming the vehicle belonged to the driver: Why would you run off? Even if drunkenness came into play, surely one would realize that the police would then have your car that has your license plate on it that is registered to your name and address. It would just be a matter of time until they knocked on your door, so why make it worse by running away?

Assuming the vehicle did not belong to the driver: Do you really think your friend is not going to turn you in, especially since you left him injured on the side of the road?

Well... that guy wasn't very smart, was he??? I hope they catch him! He must be one of the people I used to see driving crazy late at night near my old apartment (it was on that side of town)!
