OAP drives 225 miles with dead mis­sus in car!

Midweek Sport - - BOG BREAK -

A CON­FUSED pen­sioner drove 225 miles with his DEAD WIFE in the pas­sen­ger seat as they re­turned from a hol­i­day.

The 71-year-old un­named man was head­ing home to Bri­tish Columbia, Canada, af­ter a break in Ore­gon, USA, when his wife, 75, passed away next to him.

The pen­sioner “got con­fused” if he was al­lowed to cross the bor­der back into Canada with a dead body so kept driv­ing be­fore call­ing for help.

He was even­tu­ally picked up 20 miles south of the Cana­dian bor­der.

Po­lice Chief Robert Burks said: “He was tak­ing her home, to deal with it up there.”

Paramedics took his wife to hos­pi­tal, where she was pro­nounced dead from nat­u­ral causes.
