Headline of the Day

Florida man pulled over while driving with traffic sign in his head
A man is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after police pulled him over and found he was driving with a portion of a traffic sign embedded into his head, ActionNewsJax.com reported.

Florida Highway Patrol says Leslie Richard Newton, 63, of St. Augustine, was driving a gray Camaro eastbound on SR 16 when he hit a sign. He continued driving and was eventually pulled over on U.S. 1 just north of SR 16 with a portion of the traffic sign in his head.
Why, yes, alcohol was involved! How did you ever guess? There's a short video with some crash scene footage. It's an older Camaro, fourth generation, circa mid 1990s. I assumed it was a midlife crisis car, something new, but no, this is an older model. I guess I should be surprised it wasn't an '85 IROC with T-tops...

If you're 63 years old out driving drunk in a 20 year old Camaro, you might be a redneck - or a C&W song...

That is all.

Good thing the sign stayed put. No doubt it was holding his brain in place.
