Leaves Four Dead Cars and One Damaged House Behind
A LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, MAN WAS still on the loose Monday two days after his pathetic attempt to firebomb his (girlfriend's?) car left him without wheels of his own and being treated for burns in the hospital.
Police say that the unidentified man apparently decided to settle a domestic dispute by setting his friend's car on fire Saturday. Neighbors reported that he drove up alongside the target vehicle, a PT Cruiser where he lit a flaming device inside his car and threw it into the Cruiser.
While he did successfully set the old Plymouth on fire, he also set the passenger seat of his own car and his clothing on fire as well. Finding himself wearing a suit of flames, he panicked and tried to flee jamming his foot down on nis accelerator.
His flight only lasted a few feet as he plowed into a parked pickup truck driving it into the car parked in front of it. The second car was then run into the side of a house where it not only damaged the wall, but set the house on fire as well.
Soon plenty of help arrived to put out the two car fires and douse down the house while an ambulance took to victim to the hospital to be treated for his burns. We don't know what the police were doing at the time, but they weren't watching the perp very well because after he was treated he bolted from the hospital and as of Monday evening was still on the lamb.
WDRB-TV filed this video report that includes interviews with several eyewitnesses to the debacle:
