Unconscious Drunk Man Rides 14 Miles on Oblivious Driver’s Trunk
The couple who was in the car claimed they had no idea the person was even there.
A couple in a car took a drunk man on a ride Thursday night in Memphis as he laid unconscious on their car trunk until police informed them of the stowaway, according to local news station Fox 13.
Carl Webb and his wife said that they were coming from a barbecue festival and didn't notice anything awry when they returned to their late-model Ford Taurus and left, according to the report. But apparently, something was very much awry—a man was curled up on their car's trunk.
"There's no way to describe it. It's unbelievable," said Webb, according to Fox 13.
When police informed Webb of the man resting on the rear of the car, he was in shock.
“The officer came up and he said, ‘Mr. are you aware there's a body on your trunk?’, and that did not register. He goes, ‘Mister, I'm not messing with you. There's a body on your trunk.’ So I got out. We walked around and sure enough there he was still hanging on, still unconscious, just lying there," Webb said, according to Fox 13.
Apparently, the man had managed to ride on the back of the car for 14 miles.
According to Fox 13, the man was put inside the police car, but it is unclear if he is facing any charges.
