  • I guess this would go here too — there was also an insane hit and run at 8th and T on Saturday night around 10:20 PM. Range Rover ran up on a small, older (late 90s/early 00s) Hyundai (it looked like a hyundai, not 100% sure) driving south on 9th St. They moved on like nothing was happening and turned left onto T as onlookers on the new All Souls patio jumped up to take pictures of the damage and the Range Rover (now stuck at the light on T). Apparently an onlooker (regrettably not me, as I was too in-shock to realize next steps were to call the police!) called the cops because the Range Rover was pulled over by a BIKE COP about 5 minutes later, and 4 cop cars not long after that. It looked like the Rover had 3-4 people inside, all older…really an unfortunate decision making process by that driver.
