Around 2:00 in the morning Tuesday someone drove into a couple of cars parked on Gravois near Ellenwood. Instead of leaving a note or making the bad choice of just driving away, the driver got out of the car and ran.
So a tow truck is called out to pick up the wrecked cars and while doing his job a suspected drunk driver plows into the tow truck driver. The tow truck driver goes to the hospital in serious, but stable condition. The suspected drunk gets a ride in one of the few cars that isn't wrecked... a police car. He's off to jail.
So if you're keeping score: three wrecked cars, one guy in the hospital, one guy in jail and one person on the run. Quite a morning.
