  1. The video of overturned car and fire hydrant reveals some people laughing at the scene. There is no mention of what happened to the driver and/or passengers…I hope no one died in order to provide entertainment to the viewers.

  2. According to Loudlabs News site, this was a hit and run accident and no one was injured. Or apparently not injured enough to preclude leaving the scene.
