A Man Drives For 35 Miles and Hits 100 Miles-Per-Hour . . . With His Wife On the Hood Clinging To His Windshield Wiper
I know this is a story about a really sad fight between a husband and a wife that escalated WAY, WAY too far . . . but all I can think about is how this woman has found her true calling as a stunt woman. On Saturday, 36-year-old Christopher Carroll of Manteca, California got into a fight with his wife. Her name hasn’t been released. Christopher threatened to leave, and got into the family minivan. She got on the hood of the van to stop him. Only it didn’t work: He started DRIVING. She held on. He kept going. She held on to a windshield wiper blade. He went to the FREEWAY. She kept holding on. When all was said and done, Carroll drove 35 MILES with his wife on the hood of the minivan . . . in 30-degree weather . . . and even hit speeds as fast as 100 MILES-PER-HOUR. She never let go, and never fell. Two people called 911. By the time police arrived, Carroll had slowed down and his wife had safely rolled off the hood. A witness took her to the hospital where she was treated for hypothermia. Carroll was arrested and charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, and domestic assault. About a week earlier, Carroll had been arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance, then released.
