Before the police and fire department arrived. The chick was still inside the SUV at this point.
She'd had her drivers license less than a week. She mounted the curb, took out two trees and a wrought-iron stair railing to get to this point.
A perfect fit. She couldn't have made a better shot if she'd been aiming for it. And the building's maintenance man was probably wondering if he was going to be the one to clean up the mess. Which he was.
After the cops got her out but before the fire department got there to close off the place. You can see where the bumper had smashed through the wall... my neighbor's head was right on the other side of that.
The chick driving said that for some reason her brakes just stopped working, and she panicked. Hmm...
... could be that car stereo wedged underneath the brake pedal. Just a guess. Also notice that the airbags didn't go off.
Later she tried to change her story to say she was "run off the road by someone." My landlord took pretty much the same photos I did though, so her insurance company was probably all over that stereo jammed under the brakes.
My neighbor, dazed and confused amongst the aftermath.
