A man in Michigan tried to stop his pick-up using his feet! Maybe he thought that he was Fred Flintstone.
The feet of a 24-year-old Detroit-area man failed him as he tried to use them to brake his pickup on a busy highway. The man rolled about two miles while sticking his feet outside his truck in attempts to stop it, hitting four vehicles along the way.
The man admitted he knew the brakes weren’t working but wanted to get home because he was tired and had to go to work the next day. Unable to stop the truck at an intersection, he ran the light and hit two vehicles. He continued on and hit two more at another intersection.
The driver was finally stopped when an officer caught up with him and told him to put the truck in park. (msnbc.com)
I wonder if he works for Mr Slate at the rock quarry?
