1998 Toronto Carjacking

…my second week in Toronto. There was a heatwave, and I couldn’t sleep. About 3am, eight police cars scream past my rooming house, so I grabbed my camera and ran (!!) to find this. I got there before they had set up the yellow tape… a bunch of kinds carjacked the mini-van, ran a red, hit a car, flipped a bunch of times, and took off running.

They got caught while I was on the scene, so I have their photos as well. The next day, when I told my editor why I was late, he told me “cool… but you work for a tech magazine. We don’t care about that stuff.”
