So much for social distancing…
As you can see, things didn’t turn out so well for the car—or its driver, Chen, who was later arrested.
On Tuesday morning, at around 7:30, Chen “slammed into a parked and unoccupied white van near West 47th Street, but instead of sticking around to exchange information with the owner,” reported the New York Post, “he sputtered off so fast a portion of his hood appears to fly off from the wind, according to cops.”
Chen was charged with reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs and was being held at the Midtown North station house on Tuesday. Cops couldn’t say what drugs he’s suspected of being on.
Chen bought the Gemballa Mirage GT—which is modified Porsche Carrera—in 2014, according to the du Pont Registry.
The car’s owner, before he wrecked it, could boast that its output was between 612 to 670 horsepower.
