Tackling the wildebeest

Walking down to the station on my way home from work I heard an almighty bang. I looked over the road to find that three youths had rolled a car over onto its roof and were running away. A group of onlookers ran over to make sure that nobody was trapped or injured in the vehicle, which turned out to be empty. A passing fire engine (there are a lot of passing fire engines in these parts) stopped and dealt with the formalities. I went and got my train.

Just another day in paradise.

Maybe they had lost their bus fares and were looking for them under the car. I would not wish to speculate on their motivation. Or even their abject lack of social conscience. I assume the car still had its wheels?

The car was entire, just inverted. I assumed it was a piece of street theatre.
