Zoinks! Mystery Machine crashes in St. Paul, no sign of Scooby or Shaggy

Publish date:


Scooby and Shaggy were nowhere to be seen when this real life Mystery Machine crashed in St. Paul early Friday morning.

Officials tell MPR News that the van actually belongs to an east St. Paul man, and that the vehicle had been stolen from him Thursday evening.

Then around 3 a.m. police responded to a call that a vehicle had smashed into the side of a house in the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood.

Police arrived to a scene straight out of a Saturday-morning cartoon.

A blue and green van with "The Mystery Machine" painted on the side, had crashed into a home.

The homeowner says he saw two shadowy figures flee the scene, police tell KARE 11.

Police found and arrested two teenagers who were nearby, the station reports. They have since been released.

Still no word on whether either of them were Shaggy, Fred, Velma or Daphne.
