My Friends, I give you what may be one of
picture is real - not doctored in any way - and was taken by a Transportation
Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber.
When spotted in the parking lot of an IHOP restaurant, he purchased a
camera to take these pictures.
The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side.
The driver was jogging up and down on RT 925 (in the background). Witnesses said their physical/mental state was OTHER than normal.
The driver finally came back after the police were called, and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting to cut the twine around the load! Luckily, the police stopped him and had the load removed safely.
The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they made the customer sign a waiver. While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, what you can't see is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? -- 10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs.
Both back tires exploded, the wheels bent and the back shocks were driven through the floorboard. The car, with Florida plates, was headed for Clanton, Al. where the couple presumably planned to build a new house in which to smoke their crack.
