Porsche Meets Wet Cement
According to passersby who posted on the Paceline bike forums, the whole area was coned off and it appeared that the driver of the Porsche was trying to sneak through the construction zone from a side street.
You can view photos of the "accident" on Motoramic's Yahoo page, but be sure to scroll down to the comments. There are some terrific user-submitted suggestions for photo captions. Our favorite:
Hi(gh) performance car: Low performance driver
The part of this story that should piss people off is that this plutocrat, who clearly didn't believe that a marked construction zone should inconvenience him, will not have to pay for his mistake beyond (at least) a traffic ticket. Tax payers will be responsible for paying for the time and materials required for the construction crew to stop what they were doing, remove his car from the cement, and repave the area he ruined.
