I saw a car hit a pedestrian this evening.
While driving from dinner to a party, I (and my passengers, Brian, Christine, and Sol) saw a car hit a pedestrian. Rollled him right over the hood and dropped him on the asphalt. I stopped hard, and ran out to see to the guy who was hit. The car that hit him didn't have plates, started to pull off to the side, and then just took off and left.

Fortunately the pedestrian didn't seem too hurt, a scape on his leg and a split lip. He should have been much much more injured, but was very lucky.

The emergency services were pretty prompted, the SPD rolled in within 5 minutes, and the ambulance service within another five.

The asshole in the car... grr. I was thinking of using my camera to memorize his licence number, but when I saw there wasn't one, and that he had pulled over, I went to the guy lying in the street instead. I should have shot the car anyway...

Wow. Deja vu. I'm really glad the victim seems ok. Hopefully he went to the hospital, anway. missdimple's injuries didn't seem too severe, but they were internal. If the vistim has his own auto insurance, it still applies even though he wasn't in a car. A quirk of the under-/un-insuraed driver coverage.

For a moment I was all pro-gun, thinking you meant you should have shot [the car] with a gun. I cannot believe that asshole drove off. Asshole is too good a word for people like that. I bet they were drunk. What time was it? Where were you? Was the pedestrian sober? I ask that because intoxicated people are more pliable and the rumor is that they don't get as hurt by stuff like getting hit by a car because they're pretty relaxed, but that could just be an old wives' tale.
