Mayor's car hit by drunk driver-Local

The St. Paul mayor's car was hit by a drunk driver with a BAC of .26. No one was hurt in the crash, and only minor damage was caused to the car.

This is a simple story, but both the Pioneer Press and Star Tribune take a slightly different angle on it. Both are facsinating in their own unique way. The Star Tribune tells us what happened. At the end they give a brief description of the accident, adding that the driver crashed into the car going about 12mph. This gives us a good picture of what happened.
But, the Pioneer Press goes beyond what happened and shows us a snippet of the scene. They described how the drunk driver could not understand who she hit even though police kept telling her. This is a nice anecdote that really brings the story alive.
