The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is
either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The driver
was jogging up and down on Rt. 925. (in the background)
Witnesses said their physical/mental state was OTHER than normal. The driver finally came back after the police were called, and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting to cut the twine around the
load! Luckily, the police stopped him and had the load removed.
The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they
made the customer sign a waiver. While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, but what you can t see is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? --
10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each.. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs.
Both back tires exploded, the wheels bent and the back shocks were driven through the floorboard.
The car, with FL (naturally) plates, was headed for Clanton, Al. where
the couple presumably planned to build a new house in which to smoke their crack!
