Imagine waking up to find your car in exactly the same place where you parked it the night before, but looking drastically different from how you left it, with a note attached to the windshield explaining the extensive damage to the rear of the vehicle -- damage, mind you, that wasn't there when you retired for the evening just hours before. Such was the recent fate of Charley Hine from Dualistics, whose Toyota 4-Runner was unexpectedly smashed in front of Joe's Liquors, just down the street from his apartment on Larimer above the Meadowlark, just after dawn one morning last month. Dude has since picked up a new 4-Runner, so it's all good now, but sheesh! That had to have sucked. The whole incident was magnificiently captured by not one security camera but two! We found the footage so gripping, we felt compelled to share. Oh, and lest we seem like soulless ambulance chasers, the woman who careened into Hine's truck escaped serious injury. See the video after the jump.
