An employee on the scene told CityNews the driver of the vehicle got out of the car following the crash and began allegedly writing on one of the cars with a permanent marker. One of the cars had the word “Eve” written on it.

When the employee asked the man what he was doing, the suspect reportedly said, “I’m just having a bad day.”
