I was leaving the Old City tonight and a drunk driver ran that 4 way stop at Central and Jackson. Plowed right into the back of a car parked outside Jig & Reel, then backed up and started to drive off again hitting a cop car and all the cars parked on the side of N Central. Did anyone else see it? Did anyone get hurt? That road is so narrow without the cars parked on the side I think it needs to be no parking, but the cars did stop them from driving into the side of Jig & Reel.

i work in the old city and saw this happen while i was outside closing up the patio at a popular bar. this is what my account is:

the driver ran the stop sign at jackson street while southbound on central traveling approx 45mph slamming into the left rear corner panel of a parked car, pushing the parked car up onto the sidewalk and into the new bike racks at old city java. the alleged drunk driver then gassed it and almost hit a knoxville police offer who was on the other side of the bike racks. the officer was almost hit but jumped pretty high into the air and avoided the car. the officer jumped into his cruiser and cut the suspect off before they got through the lights at summit on central.

i believe there were passengers in the parked car as fire fighters and EMTs arrived shortly thereafter and were all around the parked car. i dont know if they are ok or not.

5 police cars, 1 fire truck and an ambulance all showed up. this was around 2:30am on 3/16/2013 and was all cleared (except for the parked, now on the sidewalk, car) by 3:15am.

so begins amateur weekend in the old city.

happy st patricks day!
