Video of the driver taking off after hitting @ClevelandFire Tower 1 on Superior. The car is a Chrysler Sebring convertible. I couldn't make out the plate but others were able to get the number. Luckily no injuries to CFD members who were getting out of the truck when hit. pic.twitter.com/OThzhWjaZn— Mike Vielhaber (@MVielhaber) October 9, 2020
