Kids crash their cars all the time, not the least bit interesting. But not every day does a kid crash a car in front of your house on a quiet side street.
Here's the kicker: This kid was around 14ish, and the car wasn't his. He had stolen it previously. He turns off Whites road, comes into the 90 degree corner on my road way to fast and slides across the road right into the stately gum tree that resides on the kerb on the far side of the road.
One wonders how fast he would have been going, because I've taken that corner at *cough40kphcough* with results not nearly as spectacular as this.
So he smashes into the tree, car is instantly totaled, and so is this kid. It becomes apparent he wasn't wearing a seatbelt as he staggers out of the car, and, uh, tries to run away (this is what first told me the car was stolen). His ankle was pretty messed up, but any other injuries he sustained would have been hidden by the jumper he was wearing.
Looking back on it, I could have become an hero by 'detaining' this kid until the police arrived (ie. beating the scheiße out of him, cops wouldn't have been able to tell what was mine and what was the trees), kind of disappointed that I didn't think of it until after he had hobbled around the corner and long since disappeared. Would have been damn satisfying too. The only thing I despise more then a chav is a chav who steals someones car.
Another item of note was that this particular Commodore was running on gas, which was leaking from the engine bay, resulting in a timely appearance from the fire brigade.
On a positive note, there is now one less VK Commodore on my roadz, cloggin' my lanez.
