Florida Man’s Classic Car Mangled In Hit-And-Run

A 1972 Pontiac LeMans sport convertible was totaled in a wreck in Orlando, and the person who caused the wreck is on the run.

Bruce Bessire was driving his classic 1972 Pontiac LeMans sport convertible when he was side blinded by an accident. After he was struck, the involved party decided to bolt before the cops arrived. Now, Bruce is stuck with having to deal with the aftermath.

This hit and run ended in tragedy, read about it here.

The accident occurred when Bruce was enjoying a drive in his Pontiac, with a few of his co-workers along for the ride. A car driving the opposite direction cut in front of him to make a left turn, and there wasn’t enough space or time to prevent the collision.

"Bruce tried to swerve out of the way, but there was not enough time to go ahead and react," said passenger Viktoriya Guentcheva.

Everyone was okay, but the 1972 Pontiac LeMans was not. "I’ve been driving in that car since 1980. My college roommate owned it. My dad bought it from him. They both passed away at about the same time. It’s like a family heirloom, so it’s heartbreaking," Bruce told a local news station.

"Everybody knows that it’s a sentimental thing. He did tell us that he doesn’t think it’s going to be able to rebuilt, which is really sad for all of us," Guentcheva said. Bruce had even talked about passing the car down to his son at dinner that night.

The driver attempting to make the left turn stopped at the scene for a few minutes, and took off.
