Free Beer & Hot Wings: Man Drives Cross-Country with Dead Woman in Passenger Seat [Video]

Remember the movie "National Lampoon's Vacation?"

The movie told the story of the Griswold family driving cross country from Chicago to go to the amusement park Walley World in Los Angeles. With them for the journey was old Aunt Edna. Poor Aunt Edna didn't do so well along the way, though, and passed away before arriving. So the Griswolds forged ahead, simply strapping Edna to the roof for the rest of the journey.

This news story isn't the exact same situation, but it was a good opportunity to make a "National Lampoon's Vacation" reference! This story is much creepier.

Michigan Man Drives Cross Country with Corpse in Front Seat [Video]

This is INSANE! So, this 60-something-year-old dude went to a mental health facility in Arizona near Phoenix to pick up his 30-something-year-old girlfriend.

She downed some pills outside a gas station and died while they were driving.

When he realized she was dead, he decided the best plan was to keep driving the rest of the way to Michigan in suburban Detroit with her dead body in the front seat!

Twenty six hours he drove with no air conditioner. And his 90-something-year-old mother was also riding in the van in a wheelchair, WJBK-TV, Fox 2, reported.
