In a scene straight out of Tommy Boy — one that in real life could only happen on the streets of St. Louis — a motorist was spotted this week driving down the highway with her vehicle's hood bent backwards, fully blocking her windshield.
The latest entry to our "St. Louis Drivers Are Wild as Fuck" files, the baffling incident took place Tuesday on I-55 near the Loughborough exit. Fellow motorist Stephen Todd spotted the car and heroically grabbed his cell phone to capture a short video, which he then sent to the RFT.
"What the fuck is that?! Oh my god," Todd says as he films, a sentiment sure to be shared by every sane person with eyes.
According to Todd it was a woman driving the vehicle, and the apparent mechanical failure of her hood's latch didn't even slow her roll.
"She kept driving," Todd says. "She didn’t even try to stick her head out of the window to Ace Ventura it."
