This is just … wow:

Rays minor league pitcher Matt Bush got in a previous hit-and-run accident three hours before police arrested him in North Port Mar. 22 for a DUI-hit-and-run crash, according to Venice Police records.

Marc Topkin has the details from the police reports in the story. No one else was hurt — one involved hitting a car and then making an illegal u-turn, the other was hitting a light pole — but it’s amazing that Bush didn’t kill anyone.

Thankfully, Tony Tufano, the 72-year-old motorcyclist  Bush hit at the end of his rampage is improving and, according to his family, is close to being released from the hospital.
