A Google Street View vehicle slammed into a Little Rock Police Car on Cantrell Road in Little Rock Wednesday afternoon. The Street View car was going the wrong way on Taylor Street, then U-turned and attempted to merge onto Cantrell Road, when it side-swiped another vehicle, then rear ended a Little Rock Police Car.
The driver of the Street View car declined to comment about the wreck or identify himself and was rushed nearby Fun Wash to clean his soiled clothes. A Google ID was found at the scene that identified the driver as Jack Hoff. Accident investigators determined that a short while before the accident, Hoff had been at the Diamond Bear Brewery in North Little Rock and had purchased several cases of Diamond Bear Pale Ale after taking a tour of the brewery.
The driver of the other vehicle, Jason Klinghoffer,69, said he was shaken up after the crash and accused the driver of Street View car of running red light while trying to turn onto Cantrell Road.
"Something better come out of Google's pocket for this besides the dude's ID card," Klinghoffer said.
Google could not be reached for comment.
