Court Street Accident In Front Of Abilene's Last Night Apparently Involved Drunk Driver

PMFA received two emails regarding an accident that occurred on Court Street in front of Abilene's last night.  It would appear as if the incident was caused by a drunk driver.  Luckily, there were no injuries.
Carroll Gardens reader Eric reported last night:
"Big accident on court at 3rd place. Driver looked drunk. Hit a parked SUV right outside abiline.Very scary. Was walking home from the gym and missed it by about 30 feet. Was so loud it sounded like a gun shot."

Another reader, Daniel, wrote:
"I was sitting outside of Abilene last night around 9:45pm when a car coming down Court St smashed into the back of another car parked outside Abilene, then careened across the street and came to a stop in front of the laundromat on that corner. The driver appeared to be very drunk and tried to drive away before someone took his keys. Do you have any info on the accident? Was he arrested?"

Does anyone have more details?

I also was there. He was handcuffed and taken away in an ambulance. So fortunate that nobody was hurt. That incident could have ended very very badly.

Sean, thanks for updating us. Good to know that the driver was apprehended and hopefully not behind the wheel for a while.

Bad news for the bartender that night. That was his SUV that was hit.
