Drunk Dude Passes Out On Driver’s Trunk And He Doesn’t Know It Until He’s Already Driven 14 Miles

It will forever be known as The Memphis Miracle.

A couple drove 14 miles on a Tennessee interstate with a drunk man passed out on the trunk, and they only realized it when a cop stopped to pull them over.

“The officer came up, and he said, ‘Mister, are you aware there’s a body on your trunk?’ And that did not register. He goes, ‘Mister, I’m not messing with you. There’s a body on your trunk.’ So I got out. We walked around and sure enough, there he was — still hanging on! Still unconscious, just lying there,”  driver Carl Webb told Fox 6.

The hood of Carl’s Ford is only 14 meters wide, so the man’s life was essentially saved by the lip in the hood.


Once the cop woke him, the blind drunk dude started stumbling into traffic. The cop grabbed him and carried him in to his cruiser. It’s unclear if the man faces charges.


Sorry for partying.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
