(WTNH)– Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, The Roselle Police Department in Illinois caught on camera a woman driving with a 15-foot tree stuck in the hood of her car.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the incident took place last January when a motorist noticed the car heading south on Roselle Road and called the police.
The driver, Maryann Christy, 54, told officers that she hit the tree somewhere in her hometown but didn’t remember where.
Photos and a dash cam video taken by officers have gone viral since being posted on the Roselle Police Department’s new Facebook page.
The department captioned their Facebook video, “Since we are new to Facebook, we were not quite sure what to expect from our post. We have received requests to post the video from this call. Some just didn’t believe it was true, so we have attached a short video of this call.
The first portion of the video is in slow-motion and shows the car traveling in the opposite direction; the second portion shows the officer trying to stop the car and then as he approaches the driver. Yes, it is true and it happened!
DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!”
Officers said that the woman smelled of alcohol and failed sobriety tests. She is due in DuPage County court April 15.
