A 33-year-old Richmond man has been issued a 24-hour driving prohibition and ‚Äúseveral violation tickets‚ÄĚ after he drove his Ford F-150 onto a curb, hit a pole, then fled a Vancouver gas station Thursday.
Video posted to Reddit¬†on Friday shows a Ford F-150 after it mounted the curb at a Petro Canada gas station and a 7-Eleven at Knight Street and East 57th Avenue.
Coverage of accidents and driving enforcement on Globalnews.ca:
‚ÄúCall 911,‚ÄĚ someone can be heard saying off screen.
A woman then jumped into a minivan parked next to the Ford F-150 just after the latter vehicle tried backing up.
‚ÄúHey, you cannot go anywhere, all right? You‚Äôre on camera,‚ÄĚ an offscreen voice told the F-150‚Äôs driver after he stepped out of the SUV.
‚ÄúAre you stupid?‚ÄĚ he added.
The F-150 then hit a yellow pole and spun its rear wheels before it drove around the pole and left the gas station, heading south on Knight Street.
The video then showed a scattered pile of water bottles left behind next to the pole.
‚ÄúCrazy,‚ÄĚ an off-screen voice said.
The Vancouver police said the incident began when a 33-year-old Richmond man crashed into a water display at the entrance to the 7-Eleven just after 11 p.m.
Police said the driver then left the vehicle, hopped back in and then hit the pole.
No one was hurt in the incident; police arrived shortly after he left.
Police later found the man at a Richmond home and issued the prohibition and the tickets.
The F-150 was towed away, and officers continue to investigate.
