"I Didn't Know I Hit Him!"

So said Bob Novak after driving over a 66-year-old pedestrian with his car in midtown DC this morning.

The self-described Prince of Darkness then tried to leave the scene of the accident, but was stopped by a good Samaritan bicyclist who kept Novak at the scene until the cops arrived.

Which led Mr. Novak to blurt out this post's title quote, "I didn't know I hit him."

So, Mr. Novak, when you claim that you didn't realize that you had bounced a senior citizen off the windshield of your Mustang, one of two things is certainly true:

1. You are telling the truth when you say you didn't know you hit anyone, but you are clearly too careless a driver to keep your license.

2. You actually do know that you hit someone and were forced to lie about it when you were caught fleeing the scene of your accident.

Take your pick.
