AUTOPILOT: An unidentified man in Paw Paw, Mich., got his car stuck in the mud near Leroy Township. No need to wait for a tow truck: "After several attempts to free the car," said a spokesman for the Calhoun County sheriff, "the man placed his toolbox on the vehicle accelerator, exited the vehicle and attempted to push the vehicle free. The man was successful." Success, of course, is relative: he got his Mercury full-sized sedan clear from the mud, but then had to run behind it to try to catch it. No luck: the car reached an estimated 100 mph, sometimes going airborne after hitting bumps, until it smashed into a tree a half-mile from the mud pit. Deputies decided not to give any citations to the man, who was not injured. (Battle Creek Enquirer) ...Not counting his pride.

There was a similar thing in Michigan a couple of years back, where a guy was driving his RV and went in the back to make coffee (with the RV going down the highway) and he ends up crashing, sues the company for not clarifying what cruise control is, and ends up winning 1 or 2 million dollars, and a new RV :laughing: :doh:
I wonder what goes through these peoples heads is it lack of common sense or just plain stupidity :doh:
That's hilarious. I bet the sherriff's department had a field day with that.
That guys AWESOME!!!11!!!11!

I didn't think anyone was THAT stupid.
That's the exact one I was thinking of (I believe) but thought it was true, because it was said on the news :laughing:
