I was parked in the street. No one was in my car.
At approximately 1:35AM, an unknown human driving a red or maroon large SUV sideswiped the two cars behind me, then hit the left rear corner of my car. My car turned radially, counterclockwise, shredding the right rear tire and driving the wheel three inches into the grass.
The driver who hit my car was then courteous enough to drive off. Though I have several witnesses, many of them good friends of mine, they were all three floors up and unable to get a license plate number or a complete description of the car that hit mine.
My deepest thanks go out to bdar, hssst, tofu_tofu, Brian Schwartz, arettber, adickers, ke_jia, Tory Crowe, Sarah Levin, and everybody else who helped me not freak out and get through things with a clear head (as well as contributing to the herculean effort that was getting all my stuff out of my car). Special thanks also to the fine officers of the Chicago Police Department who attended to the accident report with all due speed.
Oy oy oy.

Awww man - I hope they catch them - mostly because if they don't, and you do - well, they'll be the worse for it.
I'm so sorry Hanni...that blows! And by an SUV, it's true, Satan drives a Humvee. Fuck, fuck, fuck. Will your insurance cover the repairs? Did the police give you any idea whether or not these sorts of things get solved? Does voodoo work on cars?
Hang in there...
Oh, John, that sucks. Many sympathies. And if the fates deemed it should be so, I'm pretty damn glad they decided you should be at the party upstairs and not in the car. They do like you after all.
Silver lining. Ta daaaaaaaa!
In times like these, raising a fist to the air and shouting "fuckers!" is really the only thing that helps. I'll be happy to join in the chorus as needed.
