A Guy Crashes While Trying to Stop His Car With His Feet . . . Like in “The Flintstones”

You can laugh at this poor guy, but we all thought about doing this when we watched “The Flintstones”. An unnamed 24-year-old near Detroit was driving home from his roofing job on Wednesday afternoon, when the brakes on his pickup failed. He was able to coast to a stop on the side of the road.  He checked his brakes, saw they weren’t working . . . and drove off anyway. Witnesses say he was able to come to a stop a second time, and check the brakes AGAIN, before getting onto the highway during rush hour traffic. He made it about two and a half miles, by opening his door and using his FEET as BRAKES.  Not surprisingly, police noticed him and began a pursuit . . . and he ended up crashing into four cars. He told them he drove without brakes because he didn’t want to wait for a tow truck since was tired, and needed to be at work early the next morning. Police gave him a series of sobriety tests, but he was sober.  One officer said quote, “No alcohol.  No drugs.  Just a serious lack of common sense.” But he WAS driving with a suspended license, and has also been charged with reckless driving.
