If you’ve been in the 3200 block of California SW today, you might have noticed that startling sight – the “parklet” structure out front of Molly’s Bottle Shop is now in pieces. Shop manager Sebastiano says a hit-run driver destroyed it just after 3 am – the collision was caught, though not clearly, on a neighbor’s security camera:

If you have any information – especially if you’re the driver right behind the hit-run vehicle – please contact the shop, which is awaiting a police-report number.

    A parked suv was pretty much destroyed and pushed up onto the curb buy a hit and run driver, about a quarter block up from this, last week also around 3am.Watch yourselves on California in the middle of the night. Is all drunks, speed  demons, and apparently hit and run criminals in the wee hours.

    I imagine the drunk who did this has no recall of it today.We keep giving convicted dui drivers their license back and this is the harvest we reap.
