Instead, the quarterback’s Great Falls spread was victim of a rather dramatic hit-and-run that took out his substantial metal fence over the weekend.

Look at that! Can you believe they drove away from that, whoever they are? (Roxanne Roberts/The Washington Post)

Unlike many McMansions in the area, the McNabb home sits fairly close to the roadway, with the high metal fence just a few feet from the asphalt. We checked it out Tuesday: The fence was broken apart, a large portion caved in.

And yet — amazingly, whoever was behind the wheel managed to somehow keep driving and hightail it out of there. No suspects have been identified.

McNabb’s wife Raquel spoke to us briefly and said the family (they’ve got four young kids) was not home over the weekend so did not hear the crash.

“I hope whoever did it is okay,” she said.
