A 6.5-foot saltwater crocodile leapt out of a roadside culvert in Sydney, Australia, yesterday and slammed into the side of a passing car. The croc died in the collision and was given to local Aborigines, who ate it.
Meanwhile back in the states....
In an apparent copy cat incident, or maybe the Aussie croc was a sibling, a naked man in Wittenberg, Wisconsin, decided to charge oncoming cars in busy commute traffic. A woman drove around the guy, but he charged the vehicle anyway, jumped on the hood, and smashed her windshield. He slid off, got into a football-type stance and slammed into a second vehicle as it approached. He then casually opened the passenger door, climbed in the vehicle and sat down very matter-of-factly. Police had no trouble taking the man in for medical treatment and physchological assessment.
I think I like the Australian punishment for body slamming into vehicles better. But, hey, I now know what my emotionally distraught character is going to do as an outward display of his inward fury at his dilapidated domestic automobile.
