An overnight accident almost looked like a scene from "The Blues Brothers."
Police tell 1200 WOAI news a man in his twenties was roaring down Southwest Military Drive about 11PM Sunday, participating in the ritual of drag racing down the 'Southwest Military Strip.'
Apparently he lost control of his car, skidded off the road, smashed through a pipe fence at the Domingo Vara Chevy lot, and barely missed slamming into a row of brand new cars.
The man's vehicle then flipped, winding up upside down.
The motorist was rushed to Southwest General Hospital with non life threatening injuries, and Domingo Vara's insurance company is also grateful.
Oh...the guy lost the drag race.
