A Chicago driver made a series of terrible decisions during an epic hit-and-run-fest last week.

As far as fender-benders go, there's nothing worse than a hit-and-run. Except maybe five of them.

The motorists who commit these hit-and-runs are undoubtedly "the worst," but one Chicago driver's recent smashfest truly breaks new grounds for awful (embedded above).

For extra punch, there's also a version of the video mashed up with the pop-jazz classic, "Yakety Sax."

During the incident police tell DNAinfo Chicago happened Oct. 30 in the city's Lakeview Neighborhood, a black SUV rear-ends a cab in the 1400 block of West Belmont and then tries -- and fails -- many, many times to get away.

After the cabbie confronts and then tries to physically block the SUV, the driver pulls a shocking maneuver that gets jaw-droppingly crazy around the 1:45 mark.

Unlike most hit-and-runs however, the driver was eventually caught. Police say the SUV was stolen and the driver was arrested shortly after the incident.

The cabbie, meanwhile, suffered insult and injury: He's out a week's work, a $500 insurance deductible and was reportedly disciplined by the cab company, City Service, for confronting the driver, DNAinfo reports.
