The Smart Car, the small urbanite vehicle from Daimler, has been the butt of many jokes over the years. Recently, the mild jibes of insults have transformed into full on vehicular vandalism.
A group of eight hooded vandals is apparently responsible for tipping several Smart Cars on their sides or upside down entirely. The motivation behind the vandalism is unknown.
One recent incident was witnessed by Brandon Michael, who was smoking a cigarette at the time the incident occurred. The incident happened about 12:30 a.m. Monday near Bowdoin and Sweeny.
“All of a sudden I just see eight hooded figures walk up to the car,” Michael said in an interview with KRON 4 News. “I thought it looked like they were up to no good. And then sure enough they walk up to this smart car right here, all huddle around it, and then lift it up and set it on its hind legs.”
According to the police, witnesses reported seeing similar incidents involving Smart Cars at about the same time just on the other side of I-280. One ended up on its side at Anderson and Ogden while another was left completely on its roof at Anderson and Courtland a few blocks away
Currently, the police have no suspects and are asking anyone with information to contact them.
