QUESTION: Does anyone have cameras (or who physically saw this happen) that would have captured a 2000 Red Pontiac Grand Prix being abandoned at 80th & Kolin Monday, March 26 at around 12:45pm? It was found on 80th directly across from Stevenson, right in front of one of the driveways facing 80th.

Did anyone witness a 2000 Red Pontiac Grand Prix driving erratically on 79th st just prior to 12:45?
The car was not reported as stolen at least not as of yesterday. I'd like to see who jumped out of the car and the direction of travel.

The Red Pontiac knocked down the traffic signal at 79th & Kostner, tore up the bushes of the house on the corner, sped across 3 lawns and smashed into our car which was parked IN our driveway. The passenger bailed and took off westbound on 79th and the driver backed up, tearing up our lawn some more, cut across a corner of the lawn of the house next door and sped off southbound on Kostner before abandoning it on 80th between Kostner & Kolin.

ANY help appreciated!!!!
