Man Slams Car into Tree Due to Reckless Driving
On December 3, 2018, Lincoln Police, Neb., took a man into custody after he smashed his car into a tree and a retaining wall while he was driving with his head out of the window like “Ace Ventura”.
The Movie Reference
Ace Ventura is a movie starring Jim Carey who plays the role of a pet detective but loses his mind and does crazy stunts throughout the 1994 comedy movie. The film includes a scene where Ace Ventura drives with his head out of the side window because of his shattered windshield.
According to the police in Lincoln, the man was driving like Ace Ventura because the wipers of his car windshield were not working.
At the time of the incident, there was torrential rainfall, but since his wipers were not working and he could not see the road, he had to resort to sticking his head out of the window to have a better view of the way.
The man had reportedly fled the scene of the single car incident after he hit a retaining wall and a tree with the car.
However, police were quick to identify the culprit, and the authorities contacted him in a short while.
Unfortunately, the man was checked for driving under the influence and was found guilty with over .137 blood-alcohol report!
Few people responded to the news for arresting an arbitrated driver whose intention was to avoid crashing his car.
But it should be noted that it was sheer luck and carelessness on his part for failing to check the functions of his vehicle.
The unfortunate event could have been avoided had the driver taken proper considerations about putting his head out of the window and driving under the influence which is both against safe driving rules.
Checking if all the car’s parts are working regularly before driving them can also eliminate such incidents in the future.
