A 48-year-old Madison man, who had just parked his car on Williamson St. Sunday afternoon, narrowly missed being struck by a hit-and-run driver as a '78 yellow Cadillac Deville weaved in traffic.
The Caddy slammed into the victim's car, causing significant damage.
Moments earlier the same driver had side-swiped another parked car at the intersection of Williamson and Ingersoll Streets. That crash caused extensive damage to a 27-year old man's car.
Witnesses provided police with a lot of information about the fleeing car, including a photograph of its license plate.
Minutes later, A MPD officer found the Deville abandoned in a parking lot in the 900 block of E. Main St.
The registered owner was sent a citation (see above) by certified mail.
