    Motorist drives home with legless body lodged in windshield

    Old story. I don't remember hearing about it.

    Police: Motorist Hits Man, Drives Home With Body In Windshield

    DELEON SPRINGS, Fla. -- A motorist drove home with the legless body of
    a pedestrian in his front windshield before calling authorities to
    report that he hit the man with his car, officials said.

    Joseph Markert, 57, was trying to cross U.S. 1 in DeLeon Springs when
    he was hit by a car driven by Daniel Dradeen, 19, the Florida Highway
    Patrol said.

    The medical examiner will determine if Markert survived the impact,
    but it's more likely that he died immediately, said Mark O'Keefe of
    EVAC, which provides emergency services for Volusia County.

    Deputies first learned of the accident, which happened about midnight
    Friday, from patrons at a bar who called 911 to report finding two
    legs near the parking lot, Volusia County sheriff's reports said.


    The next 911 call came from the home of Ronald Brownie, where Dradeen
    had driven with Markert's upper body. Dradeen had been living with
    Brownie and his 19-year-old son Ronald Brownie Jr., who made the 911
    call, the reports showed.

    Dradeen didn't stop to report the accident because he didn't have a
    cellular phone with him and Brownie's home was only about a mile from
    the accident site, Brownie said.

    "A guy coming through your front windshield tends to rattle you,"
    Brownie said.

    Paramedics who arrived at the home quickly pronounced Markert dead.
    One of his arms was also severed in the accident and found with his
    torso in Dradeen's blood-covered car, officials said. Investigators
    believe the legs were severed by the impact with the car, not the
    windshield.


    FHP spokeswoman Kim Miller said Dradeen was not impaired and no
    hit-and-run charges will be filed, but she said the case is being
    reviewed by a homicide investigator.

    "It's the pedestrian's fault. He was wearing dark clothing," Miller
    said. "The poor kid (Dradeen) was in the wrong place at the wrong
    time."'

    DeLeon Springs is about 40 miles north of Orlando.

    I've heard of knocking someone out of their shoes but this is just ridiculous.

    I'm just kinda stunned about him driving home. And he's not the only one who has done this. I think if I had a body stuck in my windshield I couldn't get out of that car fast enough.

    How about that lady who hit a bum, and let him die in her garage, days later, still stuck in her windshield.

    ETA: Found it.

    Ever see the movie "Stuck" ? It's about a similar situation.

    Good. I mean there are serial killers who don't display this much apathy. They'll kill you quickly, not watch you die over a period of hours from your injuries.

    Re: Motorist drives home with legless body lodged in windshield

    There was another old guy in Florida I remember hearing about who hit someone and didn't even realize he was stuck in his windshield. Finally someone at a toll booth reported him.

    Here it is

    Elderly Man Drives Through Toll With Body Through Windshield

    10/24/2005

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A 93-year-old Florida man apparently suffering from dementia probably won't face charges after running down a pedestrian and then driving with the man's body stuck through his windshield.
    Police said Ralph Parker was eventually stopped at a toll booth on the Sunshine Skyway in St. Petersburg.

    A spokesman for the state attorney's office said Parker didn't appear to know what happened or where he was. The victim has been identified as a 52-year-old man.

    Parker's license was renewed in 2003. He had been living alone since his wife died in 1998.

    Are you talking about the first one in the thread? He knew but didn't stop because he didn't have a cell phone and was only a mile from home.

    I blame that reading fail on MN Public Schools. And since I told everyone I suck at driving I blame that on someone else I just can not think of who right now.

    Re: Motorist drives home with legless body lodged in windshield

    So I'm on the laptop in my room and the tv is going on some kind of CSI mini marathon- and I look up to see some guy stuck in a windshield. It's the episode where the lawyer hits a pedestrian and leaves him in the car for two days til he died.  That was fairly/creepy random timing. :2huh:
