Car gets hit by train catapulting into home!
Martin County, Fl (treasurecoast.com) –  A Port St.Lucie man steals a car, leaves it on the train track and then vandalizes a fruit stand! And there’s more! The car gets hit by a train catapulting into home while the people were sleeping. Then he flags down Martin County Deputies to find his own car.
We can’t make this stuff up!

We gonna let the Martin County Sheriff tell you what happened!

 

“38-year old Bradford Weitzel, of Port St. Lucie, told Martin County Sheriff’s Detectives that he couldn’t find his car after leaving a Martin County bar early this morning, so he stole one in a good faith effort to locate his own. He said he somehow ended up on the train tracks along Indian River Drive. That’s when Weitzel claims the vehicle he stole suddenly stopped dead on the tracks as a train was coming. So he said he got out and ran, leaving the car on the tracks. Within seconds, the train hit the car, catapulting it into a nearby home where the homeowners were sound asleep. Fortunately, they were not physically injured, although the explosive sound of a driverless car smashing into the side of their home was clearly jolting.
Meanwhile, Weitzel continued on to a nearby fruit stand, where he vandalized the business then tried to steal a forklift. In the end, Weitzel said he thought it was best to flag down the responding deputies to let them know he was still looking for his car.
Bradford Weitzel was arrested and charged with Grand Theft, and Criminal Mischief. Additional charges are expected.”
