A Connecticut man may be guilty of the worst parking job in recorded history: eight feet off the ground. Plainville police said the man was driving his girlfriend’s Saturn LS when he lost control, sped over a rock island, went airborne and broke through a fence, according to reports.
The unidentified driver ended up smashing into a building eight feet in the air.
A few minutes earlier and about a mile away, police had pulled over the man on suspicion of drunk driving. But he took off when officers told him to put the car in park, the Hartford Courant reports.
Although the crash put him in a precarious position, the driver managed to climb out and run away again. This all happened around 2 a.m. Tuesday. The suspect managed to avoid police until that afternoon, when officers tracked him down at a local hospital where he was being treated for injuries, according to CentralCTCommunications.com. Officers are applying for an arrest warrant, reports.
A large crane was used to remove the vehicle, and an inspector was called in to see if the building was still structurally sound.
The building is the home of Manafort Brothers Inc., a construction business. The owners are related to Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager.
