Man Caught Driving With A Sign IN His Head


Okay, now we have heard it all.  This incident rounds out our list of insanity on the road.  Remember the guy who ate his own finger or the lady who shaved her bikini line while driving?  This guy joins the duo that proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

On Friday, 63-year-old Leslie Richard Newton was driving eastbound on SR-16 in St. Augustine, Florida, when his grey Camaro struck a road sign.  The sign broke through Newton’s t-top window and impaled Newton in the head.

Despite having a sign embedded in his head, Newton continued to drive.

Police pulled over Newton a short time later.  He was transported to the hospital and is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Police believe alcohol may have been an factor.
