If we were a cable television news network, I’d hit you with a “shocking new development” promo, because this one is truly bizarre. Just a month ago, I wrote about the RV parking scofflaws who camp out along Washington Boulevard in the Marina and Venice. In particular, I singled out and photographed the one I regarded as the worst offender. So yesterday, I passed by this vehicle in its usual resting place, and this is what I see. It’s destroyed.
It looks like some sleepy or drunk driver in a car or truck veered off the roadway and smacked right into the RV, shredding it Titanic style. The impact must have been at high speed to do this much damage. Or maybe there was an explosion from the inside? The RV’s entire lower left rear structure is demolished. Fluids (including very nasty ones) from the RV were all over the roadway at curbside. When I passed by later in the day, an emergency vehicle and an “environmental” clean up truck were on the scene.
Was this poetic justice? Do I have some kind of super karmic powers heretofore unknown to me? I complain about something, and a month later, it is destroyed? Or was this a vigilante action by an irate Metblogs reader incensed by injustice? Does the Marina have its own Dark Knight?
Seriously, I hope the RV’s occupants are okay.
