Cops are looking for the driver of a sport-utility vehicle who on Saturday smashed the car into two others parked on a residential Ditmas Park street, flipping it, and then fled the scene.

The motorist driving a white Porsche Cayenne, whom cops have yet to identify, plowed it into the other cars parked on Argyle Road between Cortelyou and Dorchester roads around 5 pm, according to Police Department spokesman Det. Martin Brown, who said the collision injured no one.

The driver fled on foot after crashing into the four-wheelers and flipping the Porsche on its side, and authorities are still trying to track down the car’s owner, said Brown, who added the motorist could be slapped with charges including fleeing a scene with property damage.

Car could have been stolen for all we know or a kid could have sneaked out "dad's Porsche" and got scared - those of us that are older know what most of us did when we were younger. Don't ass-u-me.

I don't understand - that street is so narrow, how did they get it on it's side like that?

@henryford - not all drivers. But too many. Same thing a few months ago where my kid goes too school. Beyond property damage and fleeing the scene, these drivers should be charged for their driving.
