Chicago Hit and Run Attempt Is an Accidental Anecdote [VIDEO]


Some people will never get a job driving getaway cars. This clip of a minor fender-bender in Chicago shows why it’s easier to just exchange insurance information and let it go at that.

The video starts after the accident on Chicago’s Belmont Avenue. A cab driver has already checked his taxi for damage and is trying to block the car that hit him from getting away. The car tries to go around the taxi driver a few times, but the cabbie is a difficult obstacle to overcome. The driver of the car tries to head off the other way, but can’t quite manage the three point turn in oncoming traffic. But this gives the cabbie time to grab an “equalizer” from his front seat.

Our favorite part is when the cab driver hikes up his pants and threatens the car with a lug wrench.  Standing in the rain, he thwarts the driver again and again from getting past him until the other driver can’t take it anymore and takes some desperate measures to get out of what was probably a $100 bill at an auto shop.

The asshole in the black car must have had some serious outstanding tickets because he doesn’t give up easy. Not even when the cabbie starts smashing at his windows. You’d think the guy would get out of the car and get into it right into it right in the street, but no, he’s getting out of there and he doesn’t care if he smashes six cars and another cab doing it.

The pain-in-the-ass scene was caught on video from a roof across the street from Chicago’s Colon Clinic and Wellness Center.
