SCRANTON, Pa. -- A big rig wrecked some parked cars Friday morning in Scranton.
Three cars parked on the side of Luzerne Street were hit during the morning rush hour.
Police say the tractor-trailer driver who hit them wasn't aware of all the damage he left behind.
Michael Benedict works nights and he's rarely up before noon but this morning, he had an early wakeup call.
"Heard a big crash," Benedict said. "I work second shift, so my dad woke me up, and I came home, and my bumper was missing. From what I understand, a bunch of people in the neighborhood got hit."
Benedict was parked on Luzerne Street. This isn't the first time a passerby hit his car.
"This has got to be the third mirror I've gotten on this car."
But this was the worst; the impact took his front bumper right off.
"It happened previously this year. Thank God the school has surveillance and whatnot, from what I understand they caught the guy," Benedict said.
Police say the culprit was a tractor-trailer who told officers he didn't realize he hit anything until other drivers flagged him down a few blocks away.
In all, three people reported damage to their cars, including Evelyn Leyva.
"It's always a fear being on the corner, living out here," Leyva said. "I have a toddler son and we're out here all the time on this corner. And you know, in the back of mind, I'm always thinking potentially a car could come up to the curb. But, I never would have thought that it would be that bad."
Luzerne Street is a busy corridor given that the crashes happened during the morning rush hour, neighbors say it's lucky no one was hurt.
Damage can be fixed.
"My insurance company is going to love me, I guess," Benedict said.
Scranton police say because the tractor-trailer driver kept going after hitting the cars he will face citations for fleeing the scene of an accident.
