The picture at the top of this post shows the precarious situation a car ended up in after gunshots rang out in the area of Queen Avenue and Golden Valley Road in north Minneapolis yesterday evening.

"Shots were fired at the car, the driver swerved and went up the power pole, causing a power outage," Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder tells us.

The driver wasn't injured. No suspects are in custody.

Here's another look at the aftermath: Elder says the incident remains under investigation, but the driver hasn't been very cooperative.

Asked whether the driver was targeted or shot at randomly, Elder said, "I don't know... the individual was not very cooperative."

Why isn't local media reporting on who this vehicle belongs to and what led to the driver being shot at? It's pretty significant in the whole scope of things in N. Mpls.

How the hell fast do you need to be going in an ALLY to run your car up an electric pole?!?!?

Ever noticed how the "worst" neighborhoods in the US look better than most neighborhoods in other countries? There are houses and cars and people probably have big-screen TVs. So obviously, it is not poverty or lack of housing that "drives" people into crime.
