While it is amusing to watch this parking fail—it has also come in handy for the VPD. Police were able to nab a teenage driver who is suspected in a hit-and-run accident that occurred in Vancouver.

On June 16th, the Vancouver police responded to the scene of a hit-and-run accident on West 36th Avenue. A white Porsche Cayenne SUV fled the scene after striking a parked vehicle.

When they came across this video, they were able to track down the 16-year-old driver.

VPD Constable Brian Montague said the teen didn’t have a driver’s licence and panicked when he hit the car.
